I have been watching some Linnstrument performances where people are wearing it with a guitar strap. I thought to myself it’d be cool if there was an accelerometer/gyroscope you could connect that would transmit midi data. I’ve seen keytars from Alesis and of course the Guitar Hero toy guitar that have accelerometers. It would be cool to control fx feedback by tilting the device a certain direction.
I guess this isn’t something specific to the Linnstrument, it just seemed like a good fit because of the ability to strap it on, although if it had spare i/o pins, the hardware could be integrated directly on the controller.
Has anyone seen/done any projects like this in the DIY midi world? I suppose it could be any wireless microcontroller talking to a service on the PC. In fact, it would be pretty trivial to velcro an old android phone to the back of a controller to achieve this.
