The VJacket is a wearable controller for live video performance. It is worn by the performer or visual artist to control video effects and transitions, trigger clips or scrub frames with the output of the integrated sensor system. The sensors detect body movements like bending, touching or hitting, and can send OpenSoundControl or MIDI messages wirelessly to the various VJ programs, bringing the rhythmic movement of dance to computer interaction.
