MUGIC, created by Mari Kimura, is a prototype motion sensor that enables one to use movements to control virtually anything in software, specifically used by musicians, dancers, artists, and actors on stages. MUGIC was originally built with the intention of capturing nuanced physical data to control parameters in music software. The website contains tutorials, software downloads, video examples, and testimonials.


New site crawls are accrued annually.


Robots.txt (a piece of code designed to limit crawler activity within a website) was ignored. Crawl was limited to domains and subdomains of in order to remain within the collection scope and data constraints.

Embedded video files were not captured due to technological constraints.
