Re: MIDI Light controllers

  This reply is going to be vague because, frankly, I just can't
remember - but... At the 1996 NAMM show I met a young woman who worked
for a company that produced a sensor employed infra-red light. The
sensor's beam could be configured and it's output could be MIDI
messages. The concept was that a dancer or musician could trigger an
event or even control an instrument with hand movements. I believe it
was capable of detecting distance, so pitch or volume, for example,
could be controlled by hand height. Sorry I can't pull the name of the
company out of my personal memory banks. Does this sound familiar to
anyone else?
