Wireless Dance Control: PAIR and WISEAR
Source: University of Virginia
WISEAR (Wireless Sensor Array) is a Linux based Embeddedx86 TS5600 SBC (Single Board Computer) specifically configured for use with music, dance and video performance technologies. The device offers a general purpose solution to many sensor and gestural controller problems. Much like the general purpose CPU, which resolved many issues of its predecessor (ie., the special purpose DSP chip), the WISEAR box attempts to move beyond custom made BASIC stamp projects that are often created on a per-performance basis and rely heavily on MIDI.
