THE PLANK: Designing a Simple Haptic Controller.

Bill Verplank, Michael Gurevich, and Max Mathews

Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

Abstract:

Active force-feedback holds the potential for precise and rapid controls. A high performance device can be built from a surplus disk drive and controlled from an inexpensive microcontroller. Our new design,The Plank has only one axis of force-feedback with limited range of motion. It is being used to explore methods of feeling and directly manipulating sound waves and spectra suitable for live performance of computer music.
