Can Your Mobile Device Play This? (HTML Audio Test)

So let’s start out with what we already know.  There are dozens of X/Y input effect units out there already.  Korg has made it a selling point of their with their Kaoss Pads, Kaossilators, and midi controllers.  If we talk about pure synthesizers, the X/Y input ability has been beaten to death as well – and naturally this means that iOS apps with that same feature are abundant on the market.

Well, someone what clever enough to think of an even simpler way to explore the uses of an X/Y pad.  Alex Gibson created the WAVE-PD1 (Wavepad), which is nothing more than an HTML driven synthesizer that works using only HTML 5.  Will this be the future of mobile apps?
