    Max, MSP and Jitter comprise 95% of the software system. The remaining 5% is Python and micro-controller code.
    The Max system consists of a suit of modular components/patches:
    2 jit.openni processes performing skeleton tracking, on 2 separate machines, for 360° coverage
    skeleton merger, combines the 2 tracked skeletons
    motion abstracter, extracts control data from the merged skeleton, all data stored in matrices for efficiency and processed with jit.gen
    sensor gloves abstracter, handles the accelerometer and bend sensor input streams
    main patch, system clock, settings manager, sequence control
    multiple generators, one or more for each scene, generate geometry and audio, some using jit.gl.phys and gen~
    geometry renderer, OpenGL output to TripleHead2Go and 3 or 4 projectors, jit.gl.node&camera make this a whole lot easier than before
    audio mix hub, 4.1 output
    The sensor gloves are built around SenseStage MiniBee wireless (XBee) micro-controllers. They come with their own firm/software suit, the latter in Python.

      Dieter! Nice integration of technologies, combined with a coherent, powerful aesthetic.
