How It's Innovative

By mimicking the traditional music instruments, all you need to perform a song is a smartphone and PalmBand. It is a lot easier to master than a traditional music instrument; and with the recent technological advancement in digital music and wearable tech, the playing experience will only get better.

Most Inspiring Use Cases

Early musical education can be a major inspiring use of PalmBand. This product can be used to introduce music to young children of 5+, to help them develop their love for music.

Playing on a Palm and can also improve finger dexterity, which will help when you play guitar or violin, etc.

Expansion Plans

Look into ways to delve into the musical education field; form a team to work on Android UI and AI implementations. Other plans include designing new prototypes to provide more choice for customers, and look for ways to get sponsors.


Last year we completed a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter with great results, now it’s time to look at other online platform for inspirations, ads, etc. (Tiktok, Twitter, etc.) We also want to start selling through websites, possibly local shops.
