Touch v1.3 (obsolete)

This sensor has been replaced by the Touch v1.4.1.

A sensor no one should do without. Contact pressure provides continuous control. Senses from 1 N (0.1 Kg, 0.2 lb) all the way upto 100 N (10 Kg, 23 lb) on a square surface of 37.5 mm (1.48 inch) x 37.5 mm (1.48 inch). And look, it's part of a family: TouchMicro, TouchMini, TouchStrip and TouchGlove. See this videoclip for a demo !

Application examples

  1. Can be easily worn or applied to a variety of flat surfaces. Blow Laurie Anderson, Marillion and others away. Trigger those samples!
  2. Use as touch controller, eg. for synthesizer
  3. Create a fancy control panel by combining with SlideWide, SlideLong, Push2D, TouchMiniOn and Reach sensors, to name a few.
