Postby jason » Tue Feb 01, 2011 3:14 pm

"From state-of-the-art laser fabrication facilities, a computer science department with a passion for music, cutting-edge audio production facilities and the city's resident robotics lab… constructing this instrument has offered us a glimpse into the not-too-distant future..." and needless to say this device of the future is powered by XMOS, so go check it out right now! Bonus points if you can figure out how you use it BEFORE you read the article!

Great to see you on XCore!

It would be nice if you could explain a bit more about how things work, aims, why XMOS etc here on the forum?

That would be super!

We have launched alphasphere.com which explains the device a bit more. You can also read the archive of blog posts which gives you an idea of how the project came about.

I had a chance to see and play with the AlphaSphere at Maker Faire UK in Newcastle over the weekend and it looks more beautiful in real life that its pictures show it and it plays well !

Thanks to kasbah for chatting with me and letting me play with it.
