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.
