Ever try DJing with a DDR inspired MIDI controller? Pennywild wants to help
Ever wonder what it would be like to DJ using a Dance Dance Revolution MIDI controller? Pennywild has created a prototype for a controller controlled through dancing. The MIDI dance pad works by users pressing down on sensors connected to the dance pad with their hands and feet, after which the sensors transmit the information to the software and convert it to audio.
According to Pennywild, creating the product was quite challenging; evidently, the task of converting video game language into MIDI files is an ardous one. The company plans to create a beta version of the product regardless, and is currently working to land a partnership with a hardware company to manufacture it.
