    I`ve actually touched one.. I "performed" for like 20 min until a bunch of children came in the expo room and f****d up everything..
    anyway, it`s a great tool.. very interesting, easy to work with and very responsive.. imagination`s the limit..

    for anyone confused, the SHAPE of the objects means nothing, other than to clarify to the user what the object does. if you look closely, there are markings on the surfaces of each object that the device recognizes and uses to tell what the object should do

    It is a technology in its infancy. It is like the analog synths of the 1970s. You just didn`t push a button that said "String Orchestra" or "Grand Piano." You tuned different oscillators and adjusted wave generators, attacks, delays, envelopes etc. I think this is cool. Check back in five years.

    Atheist celebrate Christmas! Maybe not with the whole Jesus thing, but they still celebrate with family and believe in togetherness and giving gifts. I think Christians have forgotten the "true meaning" of Christmas.
