Multi-performer Wireless Sensors Digitizing Technology

Multi-performer Wireless Sensors Digitizing Technology
Multi-performer Wireless Sensors Digitizing Technology - 802.11b
The WiSe Box is the perfect companion for multiple performers using gestural
sensors. Its high resolution and data rate make gestural sensing more
accurate and make the continuous control of sound parameters smoother !
The WiSe Box can be applied to a variety of settings from Solo Laptop
Performances to Dance Pieces with several dancers. Its WiFi technology
makes it immediately compatible with computers and networks. All you need
is a computer equipped with a WiFi adapter or WiFi Access Point to be
connected with the WiSe Box!
Wireless sensor data can be used to control sound synthesis, spatialization or
Vjing; let your imagination flow with Max/MSP or Pure Data to create intense
interactivity between Gesture and Multimedia.
“WiSe up” your sensors, and let your Body speak!
