I saw great potential in one of the attributes of glass, its ability to resonate sound, and developed a musical instrument, “Glass Helmet Instrument”. It operates similarly to wine glass playing where sound is produced by rubbing around the rim of a wine glass. I wanted to further develop it as a prosthetic device, which can also function as an extension of one’s body that enhances certain activity such as communication or interaction.
