Yamaha Corporation and Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. have joined forces to create an "ride-on audio device," in a project in which the two companies collaborated to craft a design with a single theme.
Auditory Movement Experience Device
This is the second creation of the "&Y" project, which develops works embodying the unique style of Yamaha shared by Yamaha Corporation and Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. through delving into the possibilities of fusing musical instruments and audio equipment designs with motorcycles and other mobility designs.
In the "&Y02," the players can change the music and manipulate the sound field through movements akin to controlling mobility devices, providing an entirely new sensation of movement through music to the players inside. Comprised of loop shapes which seem to continue indefinitely, the design features a seating layout in which enjoyment is oriented to the outside. It will be displayed for the first time at "Two Yamahas, One Passion –Design Exhibition 2016-" together with a range of other prototypes and products from both companies.
