\section{Discussion}

\subsection{Controller}

\begin{frame}{Interaction design}
	\begin{columns}[c]
		\begin{column}{0.5\textwidth}
			\textbf{Pros}
			\begin{itemize}
				\item High responsiveness
				\item High accuracy (due to hand/finger control)
			\end{itemize}
		\end{column}
		\begin{column}{0.5\textwidth}
			\textbf{Cons}
			\begin{itemize}
				\item No feedback but sound itself, needs muscle-memory
			\end{itemize}
		\end{column}
	\end{columns}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}{Hardware design}
	\begin{columns}[c]
		\begin{column}{0.5\textwidth}
			\textbf{Pros}
			\begin{itemize}
				\item Free-Libre-Open
				\item Lightweight
				\item Modular
				\item Simple to build
				\item Mainly consisting of electronics and case
				\item Single patch cable (passive PoE)
				\item No Knobs, sliders, etc. that can break
				\item Works in any environment (excluding vicinity to MRI)
			\end{itemize}
		\end{column}
		\begin{column}{0.5\textwidth}
			\textbf{Cons}
			\begin{itemize}
				\item Intermediate SMD soldering skills
				\item A lot of manual wiring
				\item Initial manual calibration
				\item Case needs laser cutter
			\end{itemize}
		\end{column}
	\end{columns}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}{Firmware design}
	\begin{columns}[c]
		\begin{column}{0.5\textwidth}
			\textbf{Pros}
			\begin{itemize}
				\item Free-Libre-Open
				\item Modular output engines
				\item Network-based
			\end{itemize}
		\end{column}
		\begin{column}{0.5\textwidth}
			\textbf{Cons}
			\begin{itemize}
				\item Network-based
			\end{itemize}
		\end{column}
	\end{columns}
\end{frame}

\subsection{Communication}

\begin{frame}{Pros \& Cons}
	\begin{columns}[c]
		\begin{column}{0.5\textwidth}
			\textbf{Pros}
			\begin{itemize}
				\item OSC is versatile
				\item TUIO is the right tool for the job
			\end{itemize}
		\end{column}
		\begin{column}{0.5\textwidth}
			\textbf{Cons}
			\begin{itemize}
				\item OSC is not plug'n'play
				\item TUIO is not readily available
			\end{itemize}
		\end{column}
	\end{columns}
\end{frame}

\subsection{Next steps}

\begin{frame}{Hardware design}
	\begin{itemize}
		\item Make calibration more automatic
		\item Reduce manual cabling
		\item Add 2 more rows of sensors for 3D?
		\item Carve out case from a piece of wood
		\item Make case flatter, sturdier
		\item Magnetic force-feedback?
	\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}{Firmware design}
	\begin{itemize}
		\item Migrate to USB-MIDI
		\item Dual-mode firmware (network, USB)
	\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
