  1. Laurie Anderson used similar wearable controls in her concerts in the 1980s. I remember watching her perform a dance/drum solo with a sensor equipped suit.
    (I don’t have YouTube access at the moment, but I think this video shows it) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mRq1xgKykM&feature=kp

    I also remember her keyboard player playing a keyboard themed tie he was wearing during the concert.
