illucia is a patchbay controller by chris novello. It lets you use physical cables to connect things like videogames, music software, text editors, synthesizers, and more. It has a free suite of interconnectable games and software, plus it speaks OSC so it works with many existing programs.
A single and tiny hand-built run is available now. Also, illucia is open source everything (built with Arduino and Processing), so you're free to build, reimagine, remix, or replicate in any way.
