Georgia Tech College of Design

Formerly known as the College of Architecture

Welcome

Design, the Georgia Tech Way

We think it's important to understand how technology enables better design, and how to fuse that technology into buildings, products, lifestyles, cities, regions, and even healthcare.

About the College

'The Glide' Wins Guthman!

Keith Groover's hands are shown holding his musical instrument, 'The Glide'.

Designed with accessibility primarily in mind, "The Glide" is an instrument that uses accelerometers to control sound.



Keith Groover, from Spartanburg, South Carolina, invented the instrument. It uses acceleration to change volume, tone, pitch, and attack, while a small handful of buttons select the initial pitch, legato, and transposition.
