Tenori-on in Barcelona, finally

By | 2008-06-13

Tenori-on demo at BCNThis evening Jordi and I went to the first demo of the famous Tenori-on in Barcelona. During the presentation everybody looked at the charming machine intensely, almost ignoring the man who was showing the details. The good part was after the speech, when we had the opportunity of holding this instrument and play a little. Addictive! Easy to understand, with a lot of potential. And really beautiful. The bad part is price: 900€ in Spain (I found it for 876€ in Germany). So it’s an expensive, really expensive toy. Maybe in the future, if they build a new version, cheaper (like the new iphone)… I could buy one.

Meanwhile this visual and touchable thing made me think about multi-touch screens. Immediately I started looking for some music program for my Nokia PDA, founding nothing. Maybe I could do something. Also I thought about the comment from Microsoft, that they will focus their new OS for touch screens (despite I’m a happy Linux user). The tenori-on was not to big, just with the ideal dimensions to hold it with both hands and use the thumbs to touch the buttons… 20x20cm… maybe I could find a second hand 11″ touch screen, and try to program something…

Inspiring in different ways, as you see.
