It's easy to create an entertaining video installation with the Milkymist™ One. No computer needed - everything is included in a small device that has it all. Connect a camera and a video projector, press the power button, and seconds later, everything you film becomes live psychedelic effects of color and light. Point the camera at a dancer on stage, at people attending your party, at toys, use UV-glow paint... there are no limits to creativity!
If no camera setup is available, the Milkymist One can produce purely generative effects which react to the ambient sound, making it an ideal option for music bands, clubs and party organizers who want a turnkey solution for simple visual effects.
To control the Milkymist One, the possibilities are endless. The device supports inputs from MIDI keyboards, USB computer keyboards, DMX desks and OpenSoundControl (OSC) clients. You can use a smartphone with an application such as TouchOSC to interact with the visual performance wirelessly, by connecting a WiFi router to the Ethernet port. You can even tap into the immense diversity of the sensor interfaces which have been developed for the Arduino board, and use the Arduino to control the Milkymist One over MIDI.
VJ's will appreciate the possibility to design new visual effects using the Flickernoise Patching (FNP) language, which allows you to create unique and personal shows without requiring extensive experience with computer programming. And if you do program computers, you will certainly like the fact that the complete Milkymist One design is open source.
The box contains everything for a turnkey experience. You just need an external beamer or videoprojector with a VGA input. No computer or software installation needed. Very low latency and response time, so what you project stays synchronized with the music.
The device is FCC/CE compliant.
