In case you haven’t noticed, we really love video games, and so we also love our collection of video game candy. They all come in metal tins, which makes them neat storage containers after you’ve devoured the contents.
Max/MSP + Wiimote to make IDM
A more technical demo of Max/MSP + Wiimotes to control Ableton Live
You may remember an interview I did with live controller whiz-kid Gustavo Bravetti where he explained how he’s rigged up alternative controllers to Ableton Live, namely a “powerglove,” electronic drum kit, and LED lights. This time he’s hacked Wii-motes into a Live controller and drives the crowd at Tribaltech 2009 into a fury of nerdery.
Friend of the Site Gustavo Bravetti is back, getting the young Brazilian boys and girls on their feet with his virtual reality glove and Wiimotes and gesturally-controlled electronica. Gustavo sends us this video from the 2009 Tribaltech SC Edition in Campinas. Having seen a lot of DJs take the easy way out at festivals in front of throngs of people, it’s great to see someone really play his laptop – and while some of us, ahem, look goofy waving Wiimotes around, Gustavo makes it look good.
