Cellphone-based beat sequencer

Computers & Mobile Music

Designed as a multiplayer version of his skittle-based sequencer, Kyle McDonald created this camera-driven beat making setup using webcam, projector, and openFrameworks based software. Since it’s deriving data from each phone’s lit screen, it would seem this could become a flashlight-based sequencer with ease. Info on Vimeo – I See Beats
