We invite you to create your own interactive product protoype, responsive display environment, new game controller or alternate musical instrument ! The I-CubeX environment enables you to do just that.
It is designed to enable you to use sensors for controlling multimedia content. It can also be used to obtain sensor data for (scientific) analysis.
With the I-CubeX, translate sensor signals with high resolution into MIDI messages that are transmitted through a USB cable and made available through a virtual serial (COM) port.
Then, send these messages to data analysis/display software, map them to virtual joysticks for use in gaming software, or, since the encoding is MIDI, to a variety of 3rd party hardware or software devices that perform sound synthesis, graphical animation, video effects, etc.. Voilà !
What you get
The I-CubeX USB-microSystem includes a
USB-microDig analog sensor interface (USB powered). A free Touch sensor is also included for demo and test purposes. A variety of software is available from our website to apply the USB-microSystem in your project - please check the USB-microDig page, and browse our resource page for more solutions. Firmware upgrades will be made available at no cost. Here's how to get started.
Please note that to configure the USB-microDig, you will need a free USB port on your computer.
For a thumb-sized wireless version without actuator outputs, check out the
Use the USB-microMIDICable to connect the USB-microDig, after having configured it in stand-alone mode, directly to your MIDI gear, and power the USB-microDig with either a USB-microGlobalAdapter, a USB-microBattery or simply a USB port on your computer. For a MIDI-only version with more inputs and resolution, and with actuator outputs, check out the
