AudioCubes are smart wireless light-emitting objects, capable of sensing each other's location and orientation, as well as distance to each other and objects nearby (e.g. your hands).
Each AudioCube has 4 onboard high speed and low latency infrared sensing and communication ports, capable of communicating with our AudioCubes nearby, as well as sensing your fingers and hands.
The AudioCubes also have built in RGB lighting, through high power LEDs, letting you display any colour you can imagine on the AudioCubes, as visual feedback which you can control from your software applications.
AudioCubes are used by artists around the world for sound design, composition, live performance, music education, interactive installations, music therapy, and many other projects.
AudioCubes are a "Tangible User Interface", a new type of computer interface in which multiple objects are used together to carry out a task on a computer or mobile device, rather than pointing and clicking or touching displays to carry out tasks.
The AudioCubes are very “fast”. The AudioCubes data updates at 1kHz sample rate so latency is on the order of a few milliseconds.
