Birdkids has announced a Kickstarter for its °Grid (offGrid), letting you capture and express your creative ideas by combining the responsiveness and versatility of a real instrument with the total integration, capability and ease of use of a wireless, mobile device.

°Grid fits in the palm of your hand, travels in your pocket and pairs with your apps in seconds, so you can go from sketch to masterpiece, without skipping a beat.

°Grid is an interactive controller interface that enables the user to experience the rich world of creative Apps, as never before. Play keys, make beats, sequence, remix sound and video, control light, launch clips and much more — effortlessly and on-the-go.

°Grid pairs with any iOS / Android / Mac & PC device and maps parameters to its interface to control any Bluetooth® BLE enabled – MIDI / OSC compatible App or external Hardware.
