Xplorer $5,735.72US
excl. sales tax

The I-CubeX Xplorer is a universal tool for anyone needing to instrument people, animals, objects and spaces with sensors and (wirelessly, if needed) obtain measurement data for analysis and/or control. With almost 20 years of experience in real-time sensor data gathering, I-CubeX is renowned for its ease of use, its variety of sensors and its robustness. It is widely used as a tool for prototyping, experimentation and research. We can offer a significant discount on the purchase of an I-CubeX Xplorer, read below.

In science, use I-CubeX to obtain human performance data, study animal and human responses to environments that change depending on the sensor data or use it to teach scientific laws.
In engineering, use I-CubeX to develop prototypes of interactive products, create innovative control surfaces enabling new ways to interact with multimedia or use it to guide students in the field of sensor technology.
In the arts, create a responsive environment, build an alternate musical controller, develop novel interactive media pieces or use it to teach about interactive art.

The I-CubeX environment enables you to do all that. It is designed to enable you to use sensors for data measurement and controlling multimedia content. With the I-CubeX, use its wide variety of sensors in your measurement or control application and translate sensor signals with high resolution into digital messages that can be transmitted wirelessly and in real-time to a computer. These messages are easily analysed with (scientific) data processing software. If you're looking for control or interactivity, send these messages to a variety of devices and/or software programs that control sound synthesis, graphical animation, video effects, etc.. Voilà !

The I-CubeX sensor range covers acceleration, tilt, orientation, touch contact pressure, touch position, impact, vibration, distance, proximity, movement, linear positon, rotation, angular velocity, flexion, bio signals, weight as well as air pressure, humidity, temperature, loudness and illumination.

Application examples

  • Instrument a tennisracket (or any other batting device) with a Bang sensor and a GForce3D-6 sensor and study the hitting behaviour of tennisplayers. See this video ! You can even add a BioVolt sensor to correlate the muscle tension to the other sensor data. Transmit the data wirelessly with the Wi-microSystem.
  • Study human balance given a variety of visual environments with 4 TapTile sensors which data controls a variety of visual effects. See also this BalanceTile demo video.
  • Detect animal displacements with invisible breakbeams made of SeeLaser-IR actuators and Flash sensors.
  • Develop your own human motion capture system using BendMicro, BendMini, BendShort sensors.
  • Build robotics devices with perimeter detection using the Advance and ReachClose sensors.
  • Create a climate control system with the Air, Hot and Light sensors. Use the outputs of the WiSystem to turn on/off Switches.
  • With the Reach sensor create a novel control surface where merely pointing towards an object is enough to exert control. See this Interactive picture frame video !
  • With the Turn, Push, Push3D, Slide-150, Slide-500, Touch, TouchMicro, TouchMini, TouchMiniOn, TouchStrip and ReachClose, prototype a physical control surface for your favourite software. Interface all the sensors with a WiSystem.
  • Get hands-on technical and interface your own sensor using a HackCable-01, HackCable-05, HackCable2D or HackCable3D, .
  • Innovate game playing by designing your own game controller using a GForce3D and a few TouchMiniOn sensors.
  • Make a laserharp with breakbeams made of Flash sensors and SeeLaser actuators.
  • With the ReachClose and Touch sensors, create a Theremin-alike MIDI controller that turns your mere handwaving into soundeffects. See this Theremin emulator video !
  • With the MoveOn make your interactive art installation aware of visitors and with the ReachFar and/or ReachClose detect how close they approach. Hide Reach sensors in objects so that mere proximity of a visitor's hand creates a response. Detect how loud your visitors are talking using the Loud. Add a Touch sensor to allow visitors to change ambient sounds and visuals or as a lighting controller.
  • With the Touch, ReachClose and Turn sensors, extend your guitar to tweak your strumming with a subtle caress, a flick of the wrist or a different finger position. See this Hyper Guitar video !
