Live demonstration of Mobile Music Touch on CNN's BigI segment. Mobile Music Touch is a fingerless glove that can teach a wearer how to play piano melodies while they do other tasks. In this case, CNN meteorologist Chad Myers was tracking a hurricane on his computer and preparing his reports while passively learning the first phrase of Beethoven's Ode to Joy. He then tries to play the melody live, on-air. You can see that he does not trust it at first and then realizes that he really did get the "muscle memory" of the song as he repeats it. We call this process "Passive Haptic Learning." Chad has no previous background in music. We are currently conducting research on whether MMT might be useful for hand rehabilitation after partial spinal cord injury ("Passive Haptic Rehabilitation"). Professor Thad Starner and PhD student Tanya Markow explain the concept to host TJ Holmes. Live presentation September 15, 2010.
