vBow

The vBow is a haptic musical controller human-computer interface, which simulates the forcefeedback of a bow on a violin string, while driving a bowed-string physical model. It is both a musical instrument for expressing the musical gestures of a performer, and a tool for testing friction and vibration models, and the responsiveness of physical model sound synthesis.
