    Very neat presentation; I can definitely see the potential of the instrument, especially with a careful selection of samples.

    I am curious–has there been any work on implementing a wireless connection between the T-Stick and PC (rather than a USB cable)? In this age of mobile technology, that shouldn’t be too hard to engineer–and it would probably expand the movement repertoire for the instrument.

    We have constructed several wireless versions of the T-Stick, including one for a piece for dancer and live spatialized audio. The version of the instrument being used for these workshops is wired, but the next generation will be wireless.
