Monome Sixty Four

I was on at bang on 1800 GMT last Thursday, attempting to get an early place on the new order system for a sixty four after the first batch sold out in two minutes.

I managed to secure slot 30 in the queue for the remaining 40 units at 18:00:33 and had that auction winning feeling when I received the confirmation of my slot and then later payment. I really like the fact that we’ll be some of the lucky few to have secured a device.

I envy the developers for being in the great position of the orders now flowing in, having a great community, while still not outsourcing manufacture. We’re going to be coding/patching up some experiments as soon as the device arrives in a month or so. You never know we might even release some of them.

See vimeo for some fun videos.

isn’t it just a bunch of buttons with lights? yes, isn’t it wonderful? by having separate light and button systems, the device can be reconfigured infinitely. new applications and uses are continually being invented.

    I even can’t wait to have a play on this! (if you ever put it down for a minute?!!)
