I was seriously considering trying his VC LED head, but asked him (offline) about the possibility of a non-smartphone interface. He was pretty adamant that if you wanted one of his heads, you were going to use his Bluetooth smartphone interface. He seemed a bit enamored over the novelty of writing software, I think.
