Perceptum Technologies is designing a novel method to control guitar distortions. Leveraging the advances in touch sensors and motion sensors, we are creating a product called RockIt which gives musicians an entirely new means of triggering their effects. Using RockIt, musicians activate their effects anywhere on stage while modulating distortions through intuitive guitar movements. This is a significant departure from the current stomp-boxes, which require the musician to be stationary and trigger effects using their foot.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440. Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem. This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
