November 2014
Testing various types of sensors:
Hot Hand sensor, a ring shaped USB Wireless MIFI Controller, did some useful MIDI controlling for
on and off message and volume control. Seems to be a bit too simple for my purpose. Might turn
back to it later in my research.
Leap Motion Controller – although very promising technology it seems to have to narrow range for
my project. Also very hard to handle the information precisely since it seems to be a bit too
unstable for my use.
Myo Gesture Control Armband – was seriously looking at buying one but decided not after reading
online reports. It seems to have too finicky response and limited gesture control.
x-io Technologies (x-OSC) – Choose these sensor for my first prototype of ConDiS cause of the
WiFi function over OSC (Open Sound Control) a protocol for networking computers for multimedia
performance. It is an wireless I/O board that gives me access to 32 analogue/digital channels and
on-board sensors (gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer).
