Sukandar Kartadinata (Instrument Designer, Gluion Developer) - Developing sensor instruments and platforms for artists http://www.glui.de/

Sukandar talked about sensor interfaces. He started by outlining three interfaces: The Sensorlab, the Gluion and the Arduino.

The Sensorlab was the first sensor interface for musical instruments and in fact that is how Sukandar got started when he came to STEIM in 1992. The Sensorlab was made for live electronic interfaces and at the time STEIM was the place to go to if you wanted to do this. Of course today if you ask people about sensor interfaces everybody talks about the Arduino board. The Gluion is different to both the Sensorlab and the Arduino.
