Many people enjoy music daily, but in a very passive way. To more actively enjoy music, some novel musical instruments are necessary. As a candidate for a novel musical instrument, we propose a networked wearable musical instrument. This paper describes the design of the networked musical instrument as well as a prototype system. Furthermore, we demonstrate several possible novel applications of the networked wearable musical instrument. We think that this networked wearable musical instrument will bring us a novel type of musical entertainment and a novel musical culture
