Known for their work with the vocaloid idol Hatsune Miku, automobile and tech company YAMAHA will once again bring their technical expertise to the field of music this wall with a unique new musical wheelchair! The chair, which is called &Y01 or Andy 01, designed this wheelchair with ease of use in mind, as well as combining it with percussion instruments. The design of the chair was based around the eighth note often seen on traditional music staffs, with the large sail on the back made to emulate the wavy line of the note. The chairs will debut in a concert titled “Slow Movement -The Eternal Symphony-”, which will debut at the United Nations University in Tokyo, Japan on October 3rd. With the goal of making music accessible to all people regardless of condition, these unique wheelchairs will hopefully lead to new innovations in combining music into our daily lives in unexpected ways.
