(sorry for x-post)

Dears,
I wished so much I could have joined you at Stanford this year... :(
but....!

The Xth Sense (software and hardware) is finally available on-line, get
binaries, DIY documentation, and tutorials at:
http://res.marcodonnarumma.com/projects/xth-sense/

The digital interface is developed in Pd on a Linux machine; there's a main
software for the computation of incoming muscle sound (and virtually any
sound input), and the xth-sense-lib, a collection of 120 objects (and help
files) ranging from specific muscle sound methods, to everyday Pd patching
needs. It also includes a lot of GUI stuff, to facilitate building things.
Wanna the source? Here you go: https://github.com/marcodsad

What is the Xth Sense?
"**is a biophysical musical instrument. You can build your own and produce
music with it using the sound of your muscles.
It is free and open source, and it was named the =93world=92s most innovati=
ve
new musical instrument=94 by the Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology
(US, 2012). Its name is spelled ecsth sense (not tenth sense!). But it=92s
way easier to call XS."

With the XS you can also control other software on your machine (video,
audio, light systems, etc.), send Voltage output to hardware, or control a
prosthetic arm.
Hacks are encouraged by the design of the instrument itself. For some ideas
see:

We have a (newly born) user's forum, courtesy of Create Digital
Music/Motion; the forum lives at:
http://createdigitalnoise.com/categories/xth

We are on also on Facebook (imagine!):
http://www.facebook.com/XthSense

if anybody works with it, let me know!
We have users and works in Australia, Sweden, US, UK, Ireland, Spain,
Vietnam, Germany, Russia, Netherlands, and Italy, so far :)

hope it is useful to some of you,
cheers,
