Hats are cool. Hats are nice. Hats not usually MIDI-enabled. Designers Anna Obikane and Sunny Oh are changing that, however. The duo have created a MIDI-based hat that can let you jam with the best of them.

The hats were created with wool felt. The duo then embedded each hat with pressure sensors to control sound clips and a series of fuzzy balls that handled volume. The Lilypad Arduino microcontroller board handles the electronics and the rest is up to the user’s imagination.

This is, of course, just a concept design for now. Want to see the hat in action? Click here.
