Wave: System description

Wave Carpet is a 7-branched carpet. It is connected to an external computer and the power net, and therefore includes many input and output devices and offers many new cross-media interaction possibilities. Further it opens up for many future expansion possibilities. The software is developed in SuperCollider, with dynamic graphics in Processing.
