It's been awhile since we heard from the Mogees camp, but the device has finally hit Kickstarter. As a refresher, Mogees is a musical tool that uses a special mic to pick up surface vibrations and translate them into sounds via a mobile app. It's sensitive enough to register everything from light finger drags on glass and coins moving around on a table, it comes in Android and iOS flavors and you can attach it just about anywhere to start crafting tunes. The basic setup runs £40 (about $67) and includes the app's "classic" version and the microphone hardware. If you're really into the idea and want to incorporate it into live performances or professional recordings, jump up to the "pro" version. This backer tier runs £60 (about $100), adding a slew of different audio settings within the software and a higher-precision mic. Just remember, use your judgment before tapping on whatever's in sight -- some will likely be annoyed that you've made the world into a drum machine.
