AI Cybernetics Controller Data Tracking Gestural Interface Interactive Instruments


In this paper, the author introduces a real-time, interactive performance system that challenges the audience by confusing the line between the virtual and the real. The system comprises a gesture controller (“BodySuit” - a Data Suit type controller) and automated mechanical instruments (“RoboticMusic” - percussion robots, which are applied to a humanoid robot type). He also discusses the system concept, performance possibilities, the artistic application, and aesthetics, as well as the idea of the "Extended Body".
