Conductive Body Paint makes sweet music

Popstar Calvin Harris gets into the body electric with this human synthesizer made up of girls painted in body-safe conductive ink. The ink, designed by a group of students from the Royal College of Art, is called Bare Conductive --- pun intended. It can be applied directly to the skin like traditional paint and is temporary.

In this video, the performers stand on conductive pads connected to a computer [not seen] and touch each other on the hands or body to trigger sounds. Harris has his hands painted with the ink and plays the main keyboard made up of eight scantily clad girls.

laughing my head off! put this in *family rooms* across the country and get people involved with movement/dancing and music making again - looks like it could be a lot of fun.
