Re: PD installation with motion sensors concept.

PD can handle midi, right? If so you can make use of things like kinect & leap motion & convert their output to midi and have PD parse it. Unless you wanted to bypass the midi and use the raw kinect data directly...but I don't know how you'd do that in PD. You could also have a wii controller embedded in interactive art pieces which would allow people to get a bit more tactile with the music. Or even rip apart a midi controller and create 'hopspots' on the floor which people can trigger by walking on them. A keyboard controller will give you a load of buttons (all the keys plus all the other buttons on the controller) and will be straightforward enough to re-wire across the floor.
