The sweatsonics probe sonifies the accelerometers on an Apple iTouch or iPhone. The six sonifications were designed for a study on preferences between different sonifications in recreational sports, health and fitness activities. Do recreational athletes prefer more functional or more musical sounding sonifications? Do preferences depend on competiveness? Do different sonifications provide more useful information in different sports? Do the sonifications motivate performance, or do they become irritatating when used longer term in sporting activities?
