Mogees- NEMODE Dragon’s Den 2012 Winner- Where are they now?

On 23-25 October, NEMODE held a Dragons’ Den Workshop at the Digital Economy All Hands Conference, Aberdeen.  The focus of the workshop was on New Business Models.

The winning business idea was Mogees, created by  Bruno Zamborlin & Aidan Sheridan. They received £10,000 and were mentored by Prof Irene Ng from WMG, University of Warwick.

“Mogees is an innovative new way for everyone to let their musical imagination run wild, transforming the objects around us into unique and powerful musical instruments. Mogees consists of a mobile app and a small sensor that detects and analyses the vibrations that we make when we interact with the objects around us. It uses a special sound technique to alter their acoustic properties so as to make them musical.”
