just saw a video of a new video game that'll be released on the new generation console "Nintendo Wii" . Basically the goal of the game is to conduct a virtual orchestra. Very funny !
This new console :"Wii" , introduces a very new concept : a controller that analyzes your movements in air and reproduces them on the screen. It means if you play a tennis game, and you want to hit the ball you simply reproduce the movement of a man hitting a tennis ball. Etc etc...
The interesting thing is this controller, uses a blue-tooth transmission. What does it mean ? That it could potentially be used on PCs and Macs. Imagine the possibilities : if you want to "virtually" conduct your orchestra. If you have a melodic line played by violins and you want to put some intensity and expressivity in it : you just move your hand like a real conductor would do. Wouldn't it be more fun and precise than using a simple modwheel controller ?
