Tim, that looks like more fun that electronic musicians are allowed to have. :)
It's as fun as it looks. For me and many people who use it, the smooth Tai Chi-like movement is unforced, unconscious, unavoidable, and, unlike similar head nodding tendencies, can be highly relaxing. Most of the noisy street fairs and other events where the Space Palette is shown aren't usually conducive to exploring this aspect, but it (using it as a relaxation or therapeutic aid) is one of the areas I think can and should be explored much more deeply, once people get tired of using the Kinect for fun and games :-).
Meet other computer music technology enthusiasts for presentations of computer music techniques and technologies (all music genre outputs are welcome). If you are a user of max/msp, csound, ChucK, CLM, Live, Reaktor, Kyma, JMSL, SuperCollider, or other computer music synthesis, composition, and live performance software this group is for you. Come to learn new techniques, better the code base, find collaborators, and find out what what's happening in studios, labs, and live work spaces around the Bay Area. Events include presentations (with a general gravity towards first Thursdays from 7:00-9:30pm), workshops, and hack sessions.
