Our friend Cory Levinson of Kohwi has been keeping us posted for a little while now on the trajectory of a recent invention of his. It’s an exciting new bit of technology that he’s taken to calling “ted” (lowercase to distinguish from the lecture series), short for Tangible Electrophonic Drumstick, and it’s slated to accompany him on tour later this year. It was made as part of his coursework at the Sonic Arts Research Centre in Queen’s University Belfast and comes with the dry academic paper to prove it. I won’t dwell at too much length on the particulars as the video goes into plenty of depth, but if your curiosity is aroused, you’ll be able to catch him with it on his whirlwind tour of Europe:
