Motion Synth Grip - Introduction

The Motion Synth Grip positions the screen of an iPhone or iPod touch to be played by the fingers and secures the device to the user’s hand during motion.

The Motion Synth Grip increases both the dexterity and accuracy with which you can trigger notes from the touchscreen while simultaneously controlling sound via motion.

The Motion Synth Grip design has been developed with these musician needs in mind:


We discovered that musicians could play melodies and harmonies far more accurately and comfortably if they did not have to grip their iOS device while playing, so the Motion Synth Grip positions your iOS device in the optimal playing orientation and comfortably keeps it there.


We also discovered that a touchscreen overlay could provide the tactile feedback that is essential for accurate note playing while the arm is in motion, and for accelerating practice-improvement.


Touring musicians need super-durable and reliable gear, so the Motion Synth Grip frame is made from a single sheet of aircraft grade aluminum, that is laser-cut, cold CNC-bent, and given a tumble-smoothed, clear-anodized finish.


The form and pattern of the Motion Synth Grip frame was designed with ergonomics and skin-breathability in mind, but only weighs ~1 ounce (~30 grams). Once you have adjusted the elastic section of the strap to fit your hand, you can quickly slip the Motion Synth Grip on without further adjustment. The strap achieves both a highly-secure and comfortable fit by anchoring to a small section on the thumb side of the frame (via a durable polypropylene connector) and then widening to grip a large area across the back of the hand.


The durable front section of the Motion Synth Grip allows the iOS device to be quickly and securely inserted or removed. Adjustable parts allow you to swap between supported models.
