The Gypsy MIDI Controller. Know the moves those rappers make with their arms on MTV promos? Well we’ve just found out why they do ‘em. Yep, it’s practice to play this bizarre piece of equipment, which is a kind of exo-skeleton meets sound desk meets motion capture kinda thing. Kinda. £940.00 complete. More from Gizmag.
The Gypsy Mocap-midi controller suit [MX12] is modeled on the human skeletal form, using rotational sensors placed on the body joints. The suit simply plugs into a midi interface and body movements send midi signals directly to sound modules and to popular audio sequencing software such as, Logic Audio, Cubase, Live and Reason.
