Hi, Glad you liked it, it's been so cool to share my work/story with so many people and have such a wonderful response. I'm happy to help, we just need to sort out the software on the iPad side, then making the decks are easy. What I was showing was cap touch on paper, converted to midi commands which were sent wirelessly to the ipad via Bluetooth 4 (all done on a small pcb in the card). Thankfully it worked well but at the time getting the Bluetooth into the commercial app I used was not easy! :). If anyone is interested I can post details of how I (hacked) er I mean did it. Please feel free to email me, I think I'm easily googled. Kate

Thanks, I'm loving mixing music and science, we've put up on Facebook more of the work I've done with Charlotte. I'd love to connect with musicians on how we can create new experiences, mainly because its fun :) Glad you liked the talk :)

Hi, glad you enjoyed my talk! I've been a quite overwhelmed with responsess! I'd love to find ways to work with as many people as possible and see where our technology can go! We are trying to create a platform to enable this and it just take a while to figure out the best way to do this and then get it off the ground. Feel free to email me with ideas how we could work together, that goes for any one. What is the best way my team and myself can communicate with everyone to create a platform that you can use for your ideas?

Thank you lol :) I hope one day I'm lucky enough to be a little old lady! I'm finding myself meeting so many liked minded people at all levels who truly wanted to dedicate their work to making the world a better place. I believe the meaning of life is simply for each generation to leave their species and environment in a better state than they were born into, without this generation after generation extension is the only outcome, therefore we exist solely to and because we dedicate ourselves to each other and our world. :)

Finland sounds amazing! Thanks for your kind words on my thoughts, I'm very inspired by Toaism. Any philosophy whose mantra is 'do with doing' appeals to my lazy side! Perhaps explains why sometimes just thinking about a physical task can make us tired lol. When I read the Tao te Ching a few years ago it really gave an insight into so much I have experienced in my life and I felt myself saying wise things to people I didn't even know I knew! I'm very much a go with the flow, universe provides sort of person :) Kate

Hi, the comment on manifestation resonates with me, I feel as though everything i do , every idea I have is a result of every one I have met, every experience I have had, good, bad, happy or sad, I seem to see lessons in everything I experience and feel that every person I meet has something I can share either with or to, I almost don't feel as though the ideas are mine but just a channel from what is around me. Ok, I've I've gone a little spiritual! Lol
