About RAPID-MIX:

RAPID-MIX is a European project coordinated by the MTG and funded by the EC under the program H2020.

While there is a large amount of new wearables, mobile and gaming devices to capture body movements, the current applications that truly use expressive body gestures remain rare. We believe that the use of appropropriate tools, such as user-centered approaches in machine learning, can lead to disruptive products in creative domains such as music, gaming and wellbeing. Gathering top labs in Europe specialized in interactive technology, together with leading startups and small companies, the RAPID-MIX consortium offers powerful tools for accelerating the development of innovative creative applications. Upcoming products include novel wireless motion sensors and machine learning software tailored for the creative industries.
