reactable, basic demo #1


shot by both sides
"Reactable, is a multi-user electronic music instrument with a tabletop tangible user interface.

"Several simultaneous performers share complete control over the instrument by moving physical objects on a luminous table surface. By moving and relating these objects, representing components of a classic modular synthesizer, users can create complex and dynamic sonic topologies, with generators, filters and modulators, in a kind of tangible modular synthesizer or graspable flow-controlled programming language."

I've seen stuff like this attempted before, but this is by far the most successful. It looks great fun to play with, and really intuitive. Brian Eno, eat your heart out...
