Reactable mobile for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

The creators of the great Reactable multi touch music interface released a mobile version of their software for IPhone/IPod and IPad.

The original Reactable hardware is running software sided with reacTIVision an “an open source, cross-platform computer vision framework for the fast and robust tracking of fiducial markers attached onto physical objects, as well as for multi-touch finger tracking. It was mainly designed as a toolkit for the rapid development of table-based tangible user interfaces (TUI) and multi-touch interactive surfaces.”

reacTIVision itself makes use of the TUIO protocol an open framework that defines a common protocol and API for tangible multitouch surfaces: http://www.tuio.org/

Audio CD: Teebs: Ardour

This is really good “background” music to work with in a good way. Although one might expect it on s.th. like Warp, it’s got released on the rather unknown label Brainfeeder. It’s said the guy shared an apartment building with mentors Flying Lotus and Samiyam, so expect something similar, even better. Chilled (although I hate that word) music.
