Cycling 74 presents Mira – the iPad controller app for Max

April 26, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

At the Code Control Festival in Leicester England this past weekend we gave attendees an advance peek at some of our mobile projects. Sam Tarakajian, our principal mobile developer, showed a new iPad app, the Mira controller for Max, that makes it possible, with as close to zero configuration as possible, to make your patch “touchable.” Mira presents a large set of Max user interface elements on the iPad exactly as they appear in your patch. It also provides access to multitouch and accelerometer data. We’ll be revealing more of this powerful addition to the Max universe as we prepare it for release in the app store later this spring.

As a possible companion to Mira, I revealed a new “hardware” project dubbed the MiraBox — in reality, nothing more than an 8 x 10 wooden picture frame stuffed with foam — that helps capture accelerometer and gyro data from the iPad. The software component of the project was prototyped entirely with Mira and Max 6. Like many others we’re interested in extracting higher-level gestures from accelerometer sensors, but in particular, we’re interested in tracking data when you touch your patch.
