Dimension Beam

How's this for a weird, new, yet cool MIDI controller:

Dimension Beam

It generates an egg-shaped force field which senses movement and translates
it to MIDI.  Some famous users:

Nick of Duran Duran - puts it atop his keyboard rack and activates it by
leaning into the force field.

Trey Gunn - Controls his effects parameters by moving in and out of the
field, waving his headstock throught it, etc. while playing his Warr

Peter Gabriel - Uses it in his studio to bring in sounds literally out of
the air, it being connected to his synths, samplers, etc.

And I thought the Theremin was cool.....
