Being an industrial design student I'll be working on my final project in my next (and last) year. At the moment I'm in the idea-generation phase of this project which is where you drop in. With VJ'ing being one of my passions I decided I want to work in this sector and design a specific product focussed on the VJs needs.
The question: What are you looking for in the hardware you use? I'm talking controllers, projectors, screens, transport concerns (walking around with 2Mac Pros ain't always that confortable), ... every teeny-weeny problem you encounter can be a great input for a new product.
I'd like to work with a sensor-based approach for controllers (hence my personal project with the Wii-controller
) combined with the usual knobs and faders but all in a modular package. My personal dream for a controller would be to have the possibility to adjust it to my own needs, I love my Korg but there are always some buttons/keys/sliders that aren't put to use or that are actually lacking. Anyways, that's what I've been thinking of, I need more input/VJ "problems", things that could be better, help me, help you
Shoot! Your input is greatly appreciated
