What price wireless? Sadly, EUR800.
Building custom interfaces with sensors and custom controllers should bring maximum flexibility and freedom — but then come all those nasty wires you’re tethered to. The WiSe Box has the specs interactive artists have dreamed of for years: totally wireless, works via Wi-Fi, ultra-light, ultra-portable, powered by batteries, runs via OSC. Then there’s the price: EUR800. At least it’s within range of some grant writing — get on it.
As a proof of concept, of course, it’s brilliant, and if people start to bite these kinds of devices could be mass-produced. Leave the 5-pin DIN tethered MIDI world behind for an ultra-fast, wireless-networked OSC future . . . sounds pretty appealing, eh? Via our mate Chris at Pixelsumo.
