Seems quite similar to the Eigenharp controllers, although that might not be a bad thing: after all, there are plenty of companies selling slightly different types of keyboard based controllers. I'd be interested to see how it compares in functionality and pricing.

how about making something the average person, old and young could appreciate and afford. Max/MSP, OSC, are great but what about just plain FUN? isnt there a market for that anymore?

Seriously?! Another matrix-programmer??? if the monome, akai mpc/ apc, and tenori on aren't enough?? How about something that works without different third party software programs to run? ever heard of plug and play?

Having seen the video a little better this does seem to offer a different functionality than the Eigenharp products and if they can get a good price point by finding a cheap multitouch surface, this just may find a hole in the market. I was really impressed with the vibrato and slides. Having said this: you have to wonder how this would be different from an iPad app that would have this functionality.

I see that layer of multitouch on top of an iPad. That's the immediate future of things to me...

..aaand with "multitouch" I obviously mean polyphonic aftertouch!
