Here’s Midi Controller “LivePAd” by Craig Dorety who is a musician, inventor, and a very smart (mechanical) engineer! He built this as his college project. (By the way, he went to UC Davis, where I went too!) Anyway, if you want to contact him to build you one of these or start a business with him, you can contact him at cdorety at gmail.com.

Custom-built from space-age plastics and psychedelic circuitry, this MIDI computer music controller for the 21st century allows the complete, dynamic control in a small guitar-like instrument.

It took 6 months of CAD design, some helpful design assistance and input from my friend Devin Becker and a lot of time nearly inside a nice Mori-Seiki CNC with some not-so-cheap, plastics. Many hours were spent with a soldering iron and experimenting with opamps. Now that I have started programming my own little micro controllers, I will be adding music and MIDI responsive lighting to the next incarnation of this invention.
