Are there any hardware hackers in the crowd? I would love to hear
about the crazy interfaces anyone has connected to Chuck. I've
started an experimental music/multimedia group here in NYC quite
recently and people have some interest in using computers with
homebrew interfaces. (By the way, I'm introducing them to Chuck ;-)
) Anyway, I'd love to hear some anecdotes about adventures with Chuck
and human interface hardware. Or pictures?
Oh, and anyone in area who wants to participate is more than welcome.
