Mickey Delp - the chief inventor behind Delptronics talks to us about his interface design showcased at Fantastic Arcade. Delp's customized surface for the arcade version of the video game Panoramical was the buzz of this year's event. The Alamo Drafthouse described the experience as "creating instant compositions of audio and form, mountains rising and boiling away, clouds making way for stars and black rain." http://delptronics.com/
