Here in the Experiments area you'll find all the brow-furrowing, chin-stroking activities that The ECC has been up to. Mischievous MP3s, vituperous videos, cued and ready for instant consumption and sardonic satisfaction.

Note the categories to the left. If you want only music, click MP3s. If you want only videos, there's that too. You can also peek into our Testing Area to hear beta tests and unfinished experiments that we're playing around with.  And if you're wondering just what the hell we were thinking when we made those experiments, you might find the answers in our blog.  Recent additions to all four categories are listed below.

Equipment building time

ECC is launching into an equipment building phase which should result in some interesting new items...

First, we're getting excited about hacking the Wii controller, as plenty out there are.  One that made some stupendous hacks is Johnny Chung Lee, who came up with this great scheme to make a cheap electronic whiteboard (this video shows it off well).  It turns out the project basically creates a large projected "touch" screen, where the touch is done by an infrared point of light which mirrors a click-and-drag on the computer the Wii is connected with.  Well, The ECC has this awesome live mashup platform that's used for the Wheel Of Mashup shows, but the bottleneck is pointing and clicking tracks fast enough from Ableton Live.  With this setup, and a couple of custom-built infrared "fingertips", a solution may be at hand.

We'll also be building a monome soon.  Just gotta find the right casing for it.

We were also planning on building a descendent based off the Reactable technology, though this may be superceded by the Wii project above.

Life beyond the Thimbletron is imminent.
