New Device for Touchless Summer Jams - Solar Module

Solar Module

Adding to his impressive list of futuristic music devices (Sonar*Axe, Super Synth Drums, etc.), Tony Amendolare of ElectroKraft has announced the new Solar Module (next generation from the Lunar Module).

The Solar Module is a combination MIDI controller and 8 bit synthesizer. Using a photocell sensor to detect changes in light and shadow to provide a motion sensor playing interface, sometimes known as an "optical theremin", it can generate MIDI signals as well as audio. Tony has a video of the synth operation.

This device should bring hours of creative Summer fun, be the first on your block to get one, and let us know the sounds you make!
