New MIDI Controllers
There was a thread going on about future MIDI controllers that this is in
response to. I just came across an article in the lastest Electronic
Musician* that no one has mentioned yet. Here's a brief excerpt from the
"Tech Page" column by Scott Wilkinson:
Morpheus Designs, a company based on the Greek island of Santorini, was
demonstrating [at winter NAMM] a product called the MusicMat, which is a
mattress pad embedded with numberous force-sensing resistors (FSRs). As
you move around in the pad, the FSRs send signals directly to a sound
module using a proprietary wireless protocol called Sleep-eNhancing
Object-oriented Radio Energy (SNORE).
End excerpt. The article includes a picture of the controller with the
sound module, standard keyboard controller and monitor emBedded in the
MusicMat's headboard. Very cool looking - every body needs one.

tradition of April Fool's day, now you are.
