AbstractThe iPod and similar mobile digital music players are becoming part of our everyday life, enabling anyone to carry his complete music collection to anywhere. While facilitating the permanent and immediate playback of any desired song, these devices generally lack an important feature the playful interaction with the music playback and the creation of new music itself. After initial experiments with the port of ucLinux to the iPod, we believe that playful mobile music creation needs to be an integral part of the digital lifestyle device of the future. We managed to port Pure Data (Pd) to the iPod, which now enables us to create interactive musical content for this device.
