The Kyub offers a six-sided twist on the usual 2D keyboard
Meet the Kyub, a compact, fully programmable MIDI interface that provides a new way to compose, record and perform music.
The Kyub features 11 fully programmable feather-touch keypads that connect to any computer or synthesizer via USB. Inside, an accelerometer tracks the movement of the Kyub to control the volume of the notes played.
These features make the interface really responsive, however the truly amazing thing is the way the Kyub is played. Check out the Kickstarter video below to see the Kyub in action:
The Kyub is designed as a kit that can be assembled at home by just about anyone, using laser cut parts from Ponoko.
If you’re short on soldering skills, you can back the Kyub and get a fully assembled unit as a reward. The Kyub is made to be as open and maker-friendly as possible, any computer-based synthesizer can be used to work with the Kyub.
If all this has got you excited for some cubed-out synth action, head over to the Kyub Kickstarter page to support the project and help make the Kyub a reality.
