Four students have developed yet another creative hack for the Wii, transforming it into a futuristic conductor’s baton of sorts. The game controller-turned-audiovisual instrument employs a Mac interface to control the input and generate sounds (with the help of Propellerheads’ Reason) and a Windows PC to create the visualization output in real time. The instrument can make mono-note percussion sounds, as well as incorporate input from multiple Wiimotes to form complete chords and loops. Watch the video for a neat demo.
