I like this idea a lot. And it seems like an excellent project for an Open Source Hardware community to develop a flexible platform for sliders, knobs, and switches to interface with a PC or Mac. Then anyone who wanted sliders, knobs, and/or switches wouldn't have to re-invent the wheel.

I agree! These guys did something quite fantastic, and just because they can't clearly explain the mathematics to us doesn't detract from the fact that they did it!

Hopefully scientists will find time to develop the theory and publish it. Until then, I think it's just like living in 1904, when the Wright brothers first flew a powered aircraft.
