Developers panGenerator have announced that the Dodecaudion electronic music controller is now available.
The Dodecaudion is a spatial audiovisual controller in the shape of a regular dodecahedron. Each of its walls is equipped with an infrared-detecting “eye” that collects information on the presence and position of the musician’s hand.
Here’s a demonstration of the Dodecaudion in action:
Dodecaudion connects via Blutooth to computers. Messages are translated and retransmitted via OSC (software for Mac OSX and Windows available for download).
- Arduino Uno,
- Dodecaudion Shield rev. 2.0,
- Alluminium and polymer composites housing,
- Power source (230 V for EU continental outlets)
- USB cable (not neccesary for normal operation but handy for tinkering with microprocessor code)
It’s available now and priced at 5,000 PLN, which translates into around US $1,600.
