Announced today, Mictic, the Swiss-made XR wearable wristbands that turns movements into sound via Bluetooth, has launched a new Kickstarter campaign. Mictic’s patented technology detects movement with supremely accurate sensors, and translates and transmits the movement as sound to your smartphone within milliseconds.
The wristbands uses their patented technology to translate your arm movements into included instrument sounds like electric guitar, drums, cello, and genre-based soundscapes like EDM and HipHop. Users can even play with Sci-Fi, Kung Fu and other gaming experiences. More instruments and sounds will be available for download all the time, including ones being developed in partnership with major artists.

Mictic is not just another MIDI controller, as it can work with your favorite digital audio workstation such as Ableton, Logic, Pro Tools, Garageband or 100s of other MIDI-compatible apps.
“Whether you perform on a stage, in a studio, or on TikTok, you’ll be able to incorporate Mictic into what you do before anyone else,” said Mictic CEO Mershad Javan. “The artist in you will love experimenting with this new musical tool with literally no rules, no one to tell you what you can’t do.”
Mictic has been featured in Billboard, BBC, Sky News, New Atlas, Mixdown and Protocol (which called it “The wearable for dropping beats not pounds”). The product will launch worldwide in Q4 at a suggested retail price of $139 a pair.
Kickstarter premiums include price reductions on packages of controllers starting at $89 a pair. The VIP package gets the supporter a professional video team flown to them, and a fully produced video using Mictic, along with massive social media support for their creative product.
