Create your own interactive installation art, responsive environment or alternate musical controller !
The I-CubeX environment enables you to do just that. It is designed to enable you to use sensors for
controlling multimedia content. With the I-CubeX, translate sensor signals with high resolution into
MIDI messages. Then, send these MIDI messages to a variety of MIDI devices (eg. MIDI-aware software programs, sound modules) that control sound synthesis, graphical animation, video
effects, etc.. Voilà !
- With the ReachClose
sensor, create a Theremin-alike MIDI controller that
turns your mere handwaving into soundeffects. See this Theremin emulator video !
- Also with the ReachClose,
make your interactive art installation aware of visitors when they approach.
Add a Touch sensor to
allow visitors to change ambient sounds and visuals or as a lighting controller.
- With the Touch sensor, extend your guitar to tweak your
strumming with a subtle caress. See this Hyper Guitar video !
- With the Turn,
Touch and ReachClose, prototype a physical control
surface for your favourite MIDI software.
- Get hands-on and interface your own sensor using a HackCable.
