Reach v3.1 (obsolete)

One of our most popular sensors which work along the principle of the Theremin. Put your hands into its electromagnetic field while mapping it to MIDI pitch bend and volume messages and create that spooky movie music. Design your own custom control panel. Turn plants into sensitive beings. Ranges upto approx. 15 cm (5.9 inch). Here is the Reach v3 manual. See this videoclip for a demo !

Application examples

  1. Measure proximity of human body parts secretly through thin walls, wood etc.
  2. With the Interactive Picture Frame, design an innovative museum exhibit.
  3. Make your own Theremin: put your hands into its electromagnetic field while mapping it to MIDI pitch bend and volume messages and create that spooky movie music.
  4. Make any dielectric object, like plants, senstive to reach gestures by using it as an antenna. See the manual for instructions.
  5. Create a fancy control panel by combining Push sensors (Push, Push2D), Reach sensors (Reach, ReachClose, ReachOn), Slide sensors (Slide-50, Slide, Slide-170, SlideLong, Slide-500, SlideRound, SlideWide), Touch sensors (Touch, TouchMicro-3, TouchMicro-5 TouchMicro-10, TouchMini, TouchMiniOn, TouchStrip) and Turn sensors (Turn, Turn&Spin) to name a few.
