ReachClose v2.0 (obsolete)

A sensor for waving at your gear. Leave your fans in awe of your magic majestic gestures. Reaches up to 200 cm (79 inch) distance. This sensor combines with almost any of our other sensors. See this videoclip for a demo !

Application examples

  1. Measurement of proximity of objects like hands or walls
  2. Great for making that fake Theremin.
  3. Update your keyboard with this handy gadget.
  4. Create a fancy control panel by adding SlideWide, Slide, Push, Touch and Reach sensors, to name a few.
  5. Combine with a TapTiled floor, some MoveOn and/or FarReach sensors and make sure every move of your visitor has an effect. The Flash + SeeLaser combo adds a touch of diamond robbery feeling.
  6. Pamper your robot or toy car and combine with GForce3D, or GForce2D&Tilt2D, and Orient to detect approaches to and/or impacts with walls and what have you.
