Huh, funny that you folks were posting about controllers, it just so
happens that the Ultimarc controller is now ready for sale. It's $49
and you can see it at the following link:
I can't be impartial because I will receive a small part of the net
profit of these boards. That's because I approached the company with
the idea and much to my surprise they decided to work with me on
developing the product. They also sell other controllers. This one,
the U-HID-G has a 3-axis accelerometer on a USB interface plus an
expansion port for pots, switches, slow analog in, etc.
What I like about this device is that it looks like a joystick to the
computer, so there's no need for drivers or special interface programs
or huge sections of ChucK code, etc. It interfaces to ChucK easily.
The only downers I see are 1. it is wired, not wireless, and 2. it
requires a PC for configuration because the config utility is a Windows
So basically it's another choice among many. Kassen, did you get one
in the mail? I thought Andy sent you one.
