For sensing walking, jumping, and yes...tapping. Senses from 45 to 1000 N (4.5 to 100 Kg, 10 to 227 lbs). See this videoclip for a demo ! Use with ExtendCable-5 or ExtendCable-10 recommended.

Application examples

  1. See how NYX Visual measured soccer player performance in their interactive installation with a floor of TapTiles.
  2. Measure weight, detect foot position or use for interactive dance. See the BalanceTile demo !
  3. Put it underneath your doormat and know the weight of your visitor before shaking their hand.
  4. Combine with MoveOn, Advance and/or ReachClose sensors and make sure every move of your visitor has an effect. The Flash + SeeLaser combo allows you to implement break-beams that could indicate borders or thresholds.

Software support

  1. 09 Dec 2014: SensorX v1.00 for MacOS and Windows (64bit, contact us for the 32bit version) from source code in Max. For multiple sensors or sensor outputs, run multiple instances of the application, each started in its own folder. Use together with Connect (MacOS / Windows) or BlueMIDI (Windows).

Application Notes The calibration table provides a ball park estimate. To obtain accurate measurements calibration is required for each TapTile individually due to e.g. differences in activation force. To offset activation force, apply layers of tape at the bottom until it touches the floor at rest.
