a new computer instrument

design & motivations

Our primary motivations were the following:
- Create a "physical" computer instrument
- Low skill floor, high ceiling
- Skeumorphic / non-skeumorphic paradigm
- Fun game, cute toy
- Cross platforminess
- Lightweight enough for slow laptops

In order to accomplish those goals, we made design decisions informed by our use case.
- Skeumorphism
- Motion informs "invisible" camera input
- Easy, Hard, and Free Play
- On screen keyboard
- Simple interfaces
