This “exoskeleton” drives a midi interface that you can program to trigger various functions in a musical software, in this instance the (irritating) Ableton Live.  Whilst this is mildly interesting in and of itself, I think the video should perhaps be watched more for its sociological significance.  Note the quality of the decor, the  mild house music that Mister Man is triggering with his mildly erotic dance movements and the opportunity for humor in the pricing – ie “this unit cost me an arm and a leg” boom boom!

That aside and I wouldn’t mind giving it a go after half a bottle of gin with some late Tom Waits percussion samples programmed whilst trying to dance the Robot on a recently mopped marble floor.
