The Flathand wants to be a \'universal controller\' interface that would be useful as a means of sending data into MAX/MSP, Processing or any kind of software capable of receiving variable controllor information. The Flathand could also be considered as an alternative to the ubiquitous trackpad, offering a more ergonomic means of controlling cursor position. The uniquely useful aspect to the design is the fact that the potentiometers can be used to control infinite as well as relative data. In other words, the user can increment their position relative to the last position their finger was placed, or they can increase their position infinitely. The range can be scaled to the appropriate application so that the data input is as natural and easy to use as possible.
