Musikmesse 2014: Naonext Crystall Ball controller

MUSIKMESSE 2014: Looking like something off the control deck of an intergalactic space cruiser, we certainly didn't see the Crystall Ball coming when we first got wind of it last year.

It's all business down at the bottom, with a keypad that looks like nothing out of the ordinary, but up top you'll find the dome-like structure that houses five optical sensors. Use these two control methods together and the creative possibilities really start to ramp up.
