Throttle prototype and Kroonde

I used a new scooter for the first Throttle prototype. For now, I put a wireless 2D inclinometer and an accelerometer which communicate with a Kroonde gramma system and via OSC / Ethernet to Max. I have investigated how to communicate from Max to Blender via OSC/ Python script (all the way around is no problem) but it is not sorted out yet.

Pictured above the scooter-throttle, with the two sensors on top (above the yellow Velcro) and the wireless transmitter (a black box below) and the kroonde gramma (at the bottom of the studio rack) and the max patch for calibration on screen.
