PersonalSoundtrack, a tiny wearable computer, detects your walking or running speed and plays songs from your music library that match your pace. Song speed is adjusted in real-time to match subtle variations in your gait, while larger, deliberate pace changes cause the device to change songs. You simply put it on and begin moving; that's it.

Most computational devices require the user to adapt to the machine. PersonalSoundtrack offers, instead, a symbiotic relationship: both human and machine actively adapt to each other in real-time. The 'interface' is one's natural gait. There is no optimal or pre-defined experience, encouraging meandering, wasting time, and loitering.

This project has been demonstrated at several shows and featured in several magazines.



Project, open to all to contribute to, working towards a framework making it easier for people to construct their own portable music player using a gumstix computer as the base. At present only mp3s can be played off a CF card however many additions planned such as voice synthesis using flite of Wikipedia and the use of CF Wireless Card to stream iTunes shares.
