Audio Cubes

percussa1Beautiful little building blocks that are actually “modular live performance instruments”. What?

Like little four-sided theramins, these electronic blocks from Percussa in Brussels can be used to create and control music.

They are networked and scalable, and can sense not only the position of your hand around them, but their proximaty and position relative to other cubes nearby.

 You can link up to 100 of them (at $300 each, mind you), to create potentially fantastic music.

They’ve been demoed and used in performance already by several musical artists.

Can’t wait to get my hands on — or near — a few of these . [Via]
