We are now on the second phase of the Midi Controller Jacket prototype and will soon begin beta testing with the newest version.
We've gone through a process of redesigning parts of the jacket to make it more functional, and make sure that we make the electronics as compact as possible. We're less than a couple of months away from being able to send the final prototype up for production. Meanwhile, we've collected some pictures of the building process of the new circuit. Hope you guys enjoy it!
