The Grassi Box is a MIDI-to-relay piece of hardware (built by Dan Wilson of Circitfied) based on an Arduino teensy and some accompanying software tools built in Max. The idea is to be able to control a variety of my ciat-lonbarde instruments from a computer.
In this video the audio from the guitar is being analyzed (in real-time) to find the nearest preset/combination/permutation from a set of 6884 pre-analyzed presets.

With littleBits, Ayah Bdeir is turning electronics into a resource—like cardboard, plywood, or fabric—that any designer can use. Her color-coded bricks snap together with magnets. Each performs a specific function, allowing users to quickly construct circuits that include sensors, switches, and motors. As simple to assemble as Legos, the kits lend some of the technical muscle of MIT Media Lab alumni such as Bdeir to artists, makers, and kids. The CEO has shipped her kits around the world—and to New York City’s Museum of Modern Art, where littleBits are showcased in the permanent collection.

This was for a contest. The challenge was to create a piece of music using only a sampler and it had to be under 90 seconds. This used the Akai S1000 as the sampler, and the samples were mostly from an Indian dilruba, heavily mutated. Other samples were created n Digidesign’s Turbosynth program
