Love this DIY floating multitouch screen and the whole multitouch djing but i think he needs some headphones.

Tenori-On, ToneMatrix and JavaScript Tenorion

Wonderful music making devices!

It all started with the Yamaha Tenori-On LED Performance Instrument:



Then  Andre Michelle created the ToneMatrix in Flash

And now JavaScript Tenorion using HTML 5 Canvas and the Sion AS3 library:

** Warning: Can be CPU intensive. Safari / Chrome for best results. If you do not have a fast CPU, use less effects in the checkbox options.

This is a nice implementation as you have control over the instrument and effects

Mind Controll Hardware

You must have seen one of the mind control games that were released last year…

If you missed them here are the 2 big ones:

Uncle Milton Star Wars Force Trainer: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Uncle-Milton-Star-Force-Trainer/dp/B001UZHASY

And Mindflex Game : http://mindflexgames.com/ http://www.amazon.co.uk/P2639-Mattel-Mindflex-Game/dp/B001UEUHCG

Now people are starting to create their own system…

This post details how to hack up the Mindflex game with an Arduino to roll your own: http://ericmika.com/itp/brain-hack

And  Emotiv EPOC developer headset is an expensive but probably a more receptive and polished looking alternative

“Based on the latest developments in neuro-technology, Emotiv has developed a revolutionary new personal interface for human computer interaction.  The Emotiv EPOC is a high resolution, neuro-signal acquisition and processing wireless neuroheadset.  It uses a set of sensors to tune into electric signals produced by the brain to detect player thoughts, feelings and expressions and connects wirelessly to most PCs.”

Basically this headset and the SDK Emotiv provide we can turn brain signals into controls/input for virtually any software, game, website, robot or anything controlled by a computer or electronics.

I’m not a neuroscientist but I would imagine that you could only do very basic things with this technology.

I can’t wait to see all the different experiences people come up with.

First person Tron in JavaScript

“3D Tron Lightcycle game that runs in (almost) any browser, without any plug-in!”

didnt work in FF 3.6.6  but did work in chrome 4 for me

http://www.jangaron.net/jangaron0.5/jangaron.html

“The game is completely written in Jangaroo, besides one ActionScript class that allows access to the Flash Sound object from Jangaroo. As all Jangaroo applications, it runs in all major browsers.”

Jangaroo is a set of tools to run ActionScript 3 code in JavaScript 1.x environments, especially in current web browsers.”

It sounds good but I havent looked into it yet
