The monome 40h is a reconfigurable grid of sixty-four backlit buttons. The company has announced a special edition, 40h/se. There will be 16 units available soon.
Buttons can be configured as toggles, radio groupings, sliders, or organized into more sophisticated systems to monitor and trigger sample playback positions, stream 1-bit video, interact with dynamic physical models, and play games. button press and visual indication are decoupled by design: the correlation is established by each application.
Special features for this edition:
* internal accelerometer detects motion and tilt which can be dynamically mapped to different parameters
* white powdercoated top plate
* bright orange leds
* custom grey or white base enclosure
* hand-felted wool case
Each unit will be $800, part of which will be donated as chicks and bees via Heifer International.
