First Batch of Custom XTH Sense Almost Ready

First Batch of Custom XTH Sense Almost Ready

It’s been awhile since our last update. Marco & I’ve been busy finishing up our PhDs, traveling around to demo the first iteration of the new XTH sense at various conferences and festivals, including SOLID by O’Reilly, NIME (New Interfaces for Musical Expression), NYEAF (New York Electronic Art Festival), and cultivating some exciting partnerships we hope to share with you very soon!

In the meanwhile, our team (whom you met in our last post) has made some astonishing progress.

Marije has finalized the firmware and Marco’s been working with Will to parse the two new data sets (body temperature & 9-degrees-of-freedom). They’ve also been getting the PD patch into C for the API.  Once these remaining items are complete all the energy will be focused on the software side: feature extraction, musical algorithms, and interfacing with web-based applications, mobile devices, Unity, Isadora, Ableton and anything else the community can think of.

In addition, Simon’s been preparing a small, custom batch of boards and Marina’s sent out the design for both the transmitter and receiver encasing to a 3D printer . She has also been tirelessly hand-sewing some adjustable straps for all parts of the body. We’ll use this first batch for demo-ing, market discovery and a new commission of Marco’s work.

On the branding front, Paola has completed our beautiful brand book, which we are beginning to implement to increase our visibility, and she and I are moving into Kickstarter mode in preparation for our launch in the Fall.
