boxar : audio application, paint music on your touchscreen


Last year I went to “makeart festival” I saw couple of demo on embedded devices such as boxar on nokia n810 from Sampath Jagananthan …

I wanted to test it on other platforms such as plain debian or OpenMoko smartphones check it out :

Boxar is a kind of piano using the full surface of the touch screen to display scales

boxar on openmoko


Boxar was created for the Nokia n8x0 and I built it for the openmoko (GTA02 Running SHR) as well since both support gtk and esd

Install it using

opkg install http://rzr.online.fr/docs/contribs/openmoko/boxar_0.0.20090601-0_armv4t.ipk
opkg list | grep esd

It was tested on SHR (2008) :

Find me online or contact: http://rzr.online.fr/contact.htm

I'll make an other release if it can be supported on other OM distributions …
