Here are some photos of me presenting the head(banger)phones at the ITP Winter Show 2008 last night.  Thanks to Justin Tedaldi, editor of the JETAANY Newsletter, for the photos.

The head(banger)phones are a personal music device made up of a pair of headphones and a sensor.  When the user wears the head(banger)phones, the motion and position of her head triggers different sounds, creating a dynamic interactive musical experience.

Here is some internet ink about head(banger)phones:

Gizmodo reports that I did the project using Max/MSP, but actually I used Processing/Arduino.
