This thread caught my attention for a couple reasons :
- As a beginner looking to drive TD with hardware, I ended up playing with a MakeyMakey to make a basic input controller. The problem became that since MakeyMakey is functionally indistinguishable from keyboard and mouse, input options were limited without wonking the UI.
(ie. one of the inputs is Spacebar, which for me even in perform mode, paused the timeline. and if you use the ‘mouse left click’ input too quickly, TD tries to drop new OP’s in designer mode. a little clumsy… etc. )
It seems this is just a fact of life limitation. Unless some else knows otherwise…
- We’re wanting to build custom wireless tactile interfaces to drive TD. Then I saw this :
Exactly what we were thinking. Only getting a Raspberry Pi to output the OSC data seems to be not a simple thing whatsoever, and there’s very limited information on how to get something like that up and running. (learn.adafruit.com/raspberry-pi … m-hardware - For a relative beginner, this might as well be rocket science.)
My questions would be, did your mates manifest this solution? Was it simpler/more complex than I’m imagining? Is it possible to get Arduino data into Touch wirelessly? Anything pointers would be appreciated.
Thanks for sharing everyone!
PS. @enthewhite - the slot canyon installation over at Meow Wolf looks rad. Nice stuff! I’m dying to get over there someday!!!
