NEW PRODUCT – Pimoroni MINI.MU Glove Kit without micro:bit


The MINI.MU is MI.MU’s make-it-yourself musical glove for young engineers. It’s a collaboration between Grammy Award-winning musician-goddess Imogen Heap, creative technologist and children’s author Helen LeighPimoroni, and the MI.MU glove team. This kit uses the micro:bit to create a friendly, simple and fun crafty code experience.

These gloves are a simplified, kid-friendly version of Imogen’s more advanced MiMu glovesused in her performances.

“I didn’t want to ‘hold’ anything but wanted really detailed control. I didn’t want to ‘break the flow’ of the performance or being in the zone by having to walk over to something to interact with it. The gloves are like a second skin. They are part of me. An extension of me. I become hyperreal. I’m not forced into having to be in one place or stopping what I’m doing.”  – Imogen Heap

Unlike those advanced gloves, the MINI.MU are lower cost, and easier to make so any kid can build their own. They come with a speaker so they make noise on their own, or you can use the micro:bit’s built in Bluetooth LE radio to send motion data from the glove to a computer, tablet or phone.

We really dig projects that combine science and the arts, especially wearables. Playing around with MINI.MU encourages creative coding and progressing from simple block code and 8-bit tunes to more advanced maker fun.

Includes:

  • Felt with screen-printed glove patterns
  • MINI.MU sewable speaker
  • Needle and thread
  • Alligator clips
  • Battery pack
  • 2 x AAA batteries
  • USB data cable
  • Instructions how to make, wire, code, and play

This package does not include a micro:bit – we stock those in the shop so be sure to get one!
