Another Wow!

Yet another amazing application--this time, an iPhone ocarina (flutelike instrument) orchestra! Stanford. Asst. Professor Ge Wong created an iPhone app that turns the device into an ocarina--the player blows into the microphone and moves fingers as if on a wind instrument to make music. Wow. Further, he demonstrates another app that links players all around the world.

Dr. Wong makes some interesting points about these technologies bringing musicians from all parts of the world together--flat world in evidence.
