Sing! Magic Microphone



Sing! for Apple TV isn't just about watching. It can also transform your iPhone into a magic microphone that visualizes your voice.

Your voice transmits from the iPhone to the Apple TV's speakers over wi-fi. Just flip a switch and you're singing, with subtle vocal effects to make you sound your best.


Of course, you can pair many iphones at once. While someone else is singing, you can either join them or create a playlist.




I put great attention into the ergonomics of the iPhone, and oriented the interface to encourage open postures. This lets people hold their phones with the microphone close to their mouths, without blocking eye contact.
