  • VERVE: Plug the world into your computer

    Gents - Let me start by saying I am no way related to, afficalted with, or getting any kickback from this company. I just found out about them and thought this may be a semi-revolutionary product for us in the car PC world. I found it on kickstarter, so here we go.


    VERVE: Plug the world into your computer
    by inXus interactive

    What is the VERVE?

    The VERVE is a product that lets you connect the world around you to a computer using almost any type of sensor. When plugged in to a Mac or PC, the VERVE behaves like a standard keyboard and mouse. Plug in any sensor (light, force, motion), and suddenly you're controlling the computer by squeezing, waving, pressing, dancing... You get the idea? You have complete control over how to interpret the sensor information and convert it into meaningful keystrokes or mouse actions to control your favorite application or video game. Everything is easy to use and no coding is required.

    The standard VERVE kit comes with everything shown in the picture above. It includes a VERVE unit, seven useful sensors, two banana clips for the touch sensor, seven cables to connect the sensors to the VERVE unit, 5 extension blocks, and a USB cable to connect to your computer. The VERVE unit comes with an App that allows you to configure the sensors, as well as a “quick start” guide that contains step by step examples on how to use the sensors. Our goal is to have you playing with sensors and controlling your computer within minutes after opening the kit.

    Sensors
    -Force Sensor
    -Pushbutton
    -Light Sensor
    -Turn Sensor
    -Motion Sensor
    -Magnetic Sensor (Proximity)
    -Touch Sensor

    It also says they have voltage and temperature sensors.

    Pretty awesome find. Really opens up the possibilities for emulating factory functions.

      Yeah - I saw that, but they left it off the basic kit and just include it for the educational kits, so I didnt list it. However they say there looking to add a lot of sensors in the near future.

      I'm excited about it.
