Re: [sc-dev] SC3e - SuperCollider embedded

Neat ideas. I've also been thinking (in a very high-level way) about
designs for a portable generative music playing device. As implied in
a previous message, one primary design requirement for a commercially
viable device would be to maximize the potential audience as much as
humanly possible...having SC installed as a prerequisite would be a
bit of a damper on that, unfortunately.

I found a reference to a real such device here:
Anyone have any experience with it?

A good overview on this is given in this thesis:


(btw. it's a quite nice project, too)
