Meng Qi - Wingie
The Meng Qi Wingie is a handheld stereo resonator with built-in microphones that also doubles as a development board. Its dual onboard microphones allow you to interact and enrich vocals as well as the sonic environment around you.
If you sing to it, Wingie responds with marvelously complex harmonies. Or play it as a percussive instrument and creating acoustic feedback with your speakers. Wingie is small enough you can simply take it along with you and resonate with the world. However you decide to use it, Wingie can deliver a lush stereo image by just locating the sweet spots. It’s all right there in your hands.
Wingie is equipped with a stereo line input to work with the rest of your arsenal. Plus dual headphone outputs for sharing or creating feedback loops. Whatever equipment you have now, Wingie can give you a whole new way of hearing it.
There’s a USB-Type C jack for power and convenient data transfer. Wingie can also run on a power bank. To make sure you always have the most up-to-date capabilities, the USB serial chip can be readily updated. Additionally you can use the chip for alternate firmware or your own development projects.
Wingie is really whatever you wish to make of it. Use it as a portable instrument. Or work with other instruments—acoustic or electronic—for aural exploration. All this in an undeniably cute little package that’s called Wingie because it sings with whatever is in the air around you.
