MakeSense Workshop at ITP July 7, 2015
Make!Sense MAX USB
Sensor board that supports 8 inputs with keystroke and data stream modes
Comes with a wide array of versatile and interesting sensors
Works with Scratch and Processing, as well as other languages
Can be used to invent phyiscal interfaces for existing games
Sensor board that supports 8 analog inputs in datastream mode with data plotter and logger
Allows students and teachers to perform physics and chemistry experiments with simple materials
Speed, acceleration, temperature, weather, etc.
Our newest board: Input/Output board that can take sensor input and control outputs like motors, lights, anything via solid state relay. Plug and play.
Features of the boards and sensor sets:
Easier than Arduino
Lots of nice cheap sensors: heartbeat, photocell, thermistor, breakbeam, IR ranging, moisture, sound, conductive rubber...
ANY analog sensor will work: dozens available from SeeedStudio, Adafruit, Sparkfun, etc.
Communicates via USB
Supports andy analog sensor
Good for teaching (no coding learning curve)
Good for prototyping and inventing
Supports all languages in keystroke mode. Keystroke assignments can be easily configured.
Can translate sensor values into keystrokes and thus work with ANY program without coding: games, music programs, ...
