I've recently bought a motion controller for Windows and was wondering if anyone would be interested in programming for it. The expressive potential of the Razer Hydra (sixense.com) is possibly greater than any musical interface in the world besides the Continuum Fingerboard; let me explain.

Each of two controllers can sense absolute position and orientation to within one millimeter and one degree within a six-foot radius of a magnetic sensor base (with no line-of-sight or calibration issues). Using Csound and a free 100 Hz OSC program for the controller (see http://sixense.com/forum/phpBB3/topic-61-51.html and/or http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-45612-46.html), my vision is mapping x/y/z positions to pitches, the three types of orientation angles to the volumes of those notes, and the control sticks and analog triggers to filters.

In addition to the potential ability to continuously control six notes with three degrees of freedom, the seven buttons on each controller could be utilized for on-the-fly configuration. I have one, but I'm completely new to Csound. I hope I won't be the only one interested in this type of project for long. In the US, the Hydra costs under $150 (and would cost less if it weren't bundled with the Portal 2 PC game...), so please consider...
