This is the “Human Mixer” that I first designed for my masters thesis. It is a series of five proximity sensors that are connected to a central hub.  The hub houses my ATMXB6 board, which talks to a software interface that I built in Max/MSP.  That interface then talks via midi to any other audio software.  For my thesis and for the Maker Faire,  used the mixer to control five audio tracks in Ableton Live.
