PocoPoco is a new musical interface which an user can play only by very intuitive and tactile actions such as "pushing", "catching" and "turning". We developed original solenoid actuator units with built-in several sensors, and produced a box-shaped device using 16 the units as an universal input/output device. And we apply the up-and-down movement of them to new musical expression. This device is a versatile interface that can atrract both player and audience by physical movement of the interface itself and have possibility to be used in a wide range of applications including games, telecommunication, and musical performance.
PocoPoco is very easy even for children and beginners with no musical experience. On the other hand,PocoPoco is a sophisticated device which can be used to create compelling performances. Our demonstration live performances can be watched on our youtube channnel : http://www.youtube.com/user/IDEEALab
