OSC messanger for motion sensors

GyrOSC is a lightweight utility that sends your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad's motion sensors over your local wireless network to any OSC capable host application. Control your live audio or video application with your device's built-in gyroscope, accelerometer, and compass.

Direct access to data

Access the same raw data that iOS developers use for their applications. The sensor data is sent directly out from GyrOSC - no normalizing, arbitrary value mapping, or translation to another format (like MIDI) to worry about. You can even reference the Apple Developer Documentation to find out more about the values being sent.

Plus, the data rate is fast: messages send sensor updates approximately 40 times per second for precise control.


Hardware requirements

GyrOSC will work on any iOS device (iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad). Devices that do not have the gyroscope or compass sensors will not transmit them, but can still send accelerometer data.
