Bend your fingers and control your lights. Bi-directional, so it goes from -180 to +180 (larger flex angle possible). See this videoclip for a demo ! Shorter versions are available as BendMicro and BendMini. Need another size, width, length, thickness, stiffness, ... ? Contact us with your request - we can provide you with the solution that best matches your requirements.

Application examples

  1. Combine with the TouchGlove and create your own custom dataglove for capturing finger bending, capture hand movements with a GForce3D).
  2. Go whole-body with a bodysuit, capture all your joints' movements and express with all your extremities. A couple of BioVolt sensors will capture muscle tension. Use a GForce3D on your feet and hands to capture kicks and punches. A Hot will keep you in check of your body temp.
  3. Since it's such a thin and flexible sensor, it's usable for measuring airflow.
  4. Wireless Wi-microDig with one of our BatteryPacks recommended in all cases to operate without tether.
  5. For bookworms: has also been used to detect turning of pages.

Software support

  1. Our EditorX software allows you to configure the digitizer to process and map the sensor data of multiple sensors simultaneously.
  2. Our Link software allows you to receive the sensor data from the digitizer and use your computer to view, calibrate, record, process and map the sensor data of multiple sensors simultaneously.
  3. Our SensorX software allows you to receive the sensor data from the digitizer and use your computer to view, calibrate, record, process and map the data of a single sensor.

Application notes The sensor output is determined by both the angle between the ends of the sensor as well as the flex radius; bending the sensor sharply will result in more value change than bending the sensor smoothly, when keeping the ends in the same position.
