Music Interface using Conductive Thread

Bret Renfer designed a novel interface to play back digital beats using ordinary buttons and conductive thread. It appears to work via capacitive sensing so when your finger touches the thread on the surface of the buttons, it plays a beat. The buttons in this case are just decorative. I do like the idea of using buttons as both mechanical closures as well as input devices. This could have an interesting application in wearables.

As a singer this intrigues me. How fun would it be to walk down the street accompanying yourself with your clothing.
