I think this cool prototype from 2010 never reached a matured development level...maybe that's why I can't manage to find any up to date information about this cool tool.

But I'm sure you like it nevertheless :P

FlexiKnobs are a set of slick mouse-like controllers for quick and easy multipoint interaction with audio software. A user simply points a FlexiKnob to an on-screen control element to adjust the corresponding software parameter. Assignments between an on-screen control and a FlexiKnob can be easily locked and released on-the-fly, without interrupting the user’s workflow. ....Read more



Enjoy

great work.

I wish this becomes a reality. Maybe the Resolume guys can help funding some of your prototype? A controller like this could help them to seek more licences of their software.

Welcome back guys! ;) VJ Dado França recently posted this ..ehm...ipad gadget on Facebook.


Modulares Interface B.A. – Physical controller interface for iPad
HOME!!
modulares_interface_15.jpg
Created by Florian Born, Modulares Interface B.A. is a physical interface for iPad comprised of knobs, buttons and sliders to provide precision and haptic feedback when operating a digital interface.

These controllers expand the usage of a touch device with a haptic feedback while adjusting parameters. By using magnets, the different controllers can easily be arranged onto the iPad. A modular interface appears, which uses a given device just like the iPad. The system is comprised of three different parts – the physical controllers (button, slider and knob), made out of conductive aluminium to pass on the electrical discharge of the human skin. Second, a frame, made out of aluminium and plastic, in which the iPad is inserted. The edge of the frame has embedded magnets, making it possible to position the controller precisely. Finally, the software, running as an app on the iPad which organizes the control elements and sends the parameters to the corresponding software, which is controlled by the modular interface.

Thanks for sharing Cosmowe. It looks like a great MIDI controller!

Do you know if the rotary buttons are endless?

I don't really know it... but I don't think so because of the white marker lines on the rotary caps.

Good point!

Too bad as I'm looking for a controller than the APC 40 with at least 12 endless faders and it's hard to find! Any thoughts?
