iPod SC & OSCemote Demo
There are a few Open Sound Control controllers available on the iPhone platform now, the way they are usually used is to join the same network as a computer and send messages there to perform (for instance) synthesis tasks. Now that SuperCollider itself is available on the iPhone / iPod Touch, even the synthesis can be achieved on the same machine. Usually it's impossible for the user to run two programs together, but there is a program called Backgrounder, available on Cydia for jailbroken devices, which lets you do this. The video demonstrates OSCemote and SuperCollider running simultaneously: everything you hear is coming from the iPod itself.
The code is pretty crude but it demonstrates the principle of using the OSCemote multi-touch screen and is available here:
