Noise Machine is a wireless MIDI controller that is smaller than your hand

This palm-sized controller features 12 buttons, each of which corresponds to a different note in the musical scale. A slider at the top enables you to play across a seven-octave range, and there’s also a programmable MIDI expression knob.

Noise Machine operates wirelessly using Bluetooth MIDI, and latency is said to be between 7.5 and 10 milliseconds. You can connect up to 12 different channels on one device; the developer says that this makes it suitable for jamming with friends (provided everyone has their own unit, of course).

There’s no word yet on pricing or availability, but you can sign up for updates on the Noise Machine website.
