Ein Vortrag von Dan Wilcox auf der GPN18.

Conceived as an idiosyncratic manifesto on the embodiment of computational sound, the original robotcowboy system was built in 2006-2007 using an belt-mounted industrial wearable computer running GNU/Linux and Pure Data, external stereo USB audio/MIDI interfaces, HID gamepads, and guitar. A second incarnation explores a one-way journey of the first human on Mars with the computing system adapted into a self-contained spacesuit backpack. Now 10 years on, a new "robotcowboy 2.0" powers a third iteration with only an iPhone and PdParty, the author’s open-source iOS application which runs Pure Data patches and provides full duplex stereo audio, MIDI, HID game controller support, and Open Sound Control communication. The future is bright, do you have room to wiggle? &
