Wicked last minute news!
AlphaSphere, the award-winning expressive musical football, will make a special appearance with a live performance at the upcoming Web Wednesday on April 1st. Who said networking was boring!
Inventor Adam Place came up with the idea at university after growing bored with conventional keyboards to play synthesized music.
"On a keyboard, the keys are just controllers, they're not really like notes on a piano," he said. "But with the AlphaSphere, the notes change as you press harder and harder, you really engage with the instrument, and you can perform with it."
Adam is generously offering an AlphaSphere me (worth US$199) as a lucky draw prize for the event so come along and drop your namecard at the door. Web Wednesday members get a reduced price for the AlphaSphere nexusseries, a more metallic upgrade.
