BioEmo v1.1 (obsolete)

Find out about the level of arousal and/or emotional excitation with this sensor. Developed by BioControl, this sensor measures the GSR (galvanic skin resistance). This measurement method is also used for the infamous lie detector. View the sensor data using our BioEmo software (see below). Use the BioEmo with a wireless Wi-microSystem in all cases to operate conveniently without tether and ensure electrically safe operation (see disclaimer below). See this videoclip for a demo !

Application information

Product BioEmo sensor
Examples The BioEmo combines perfectly with the BioBeat, BioFlex and BioWave. Become zen and still perform.
  1. Add intensity to your musical performance by tweaking your sound through your skin resistance and more body physiology.
  2. For whole-body expression go bodysuit, capture all your joints' movements and express with all your extremities. Combine with BendMicro, BendMini and BendShort sensors from finger to toe. Add a GForce3D-6 on your feet and hands to capture kicks and punches. A Hot will keep you in check of your body temp. Top it all off with a TouchGlove on both hands to always be able to touch-control your performance, even when you're doing a handstand.
  3. Read up on Alexis Kirke's work with the BioBeat, BioEmo, BioFlex and BioWave.
Manuals Using the sensor with the Wi-microSystem not only ensures electrically safe operation (see disclaimer below) but also enables you to use the sensor without being tethered to your computer or MIDI device.
