If you enjoy creating Internet connected applications that can be triggered by a smart sensor you might be interested in a new device called the Verve2 which has launched over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website this week.
Verve2 takes the form of the control box which is connected to your computer and Then in turn connected to a variety of different sensors depending on the project you are building. Each sensor can then be triggered to start a process on your computer such as a tweet, email or action via IFTTT.
The Verve2 smart sensor project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $10,000 pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Watch the video below to learn more about the smart sensor project and see it in action. Its creators explain :
“The VERVE2 is THREE awesome products in one. First, like its predecessor (VERVE1), it is a sensor system that you can use to easily control your favorite games or apps with the world around you. Second, it’s a web data server that lets you read sensor data through the internet. Third, it’s a full blown, easy-to-use data acquisition system that lets you collect and monitor data for your own research projects.
VERVE2 is an amazingly fun educational toy that gently brings physical computing to budding technologists and creators. With VERVE2, students learn about computers, science, technology, problem solving, and creativity. The kit comes ready-to-go, out of the box, with eight super useful sensors and plenty of fun games and apps to try. VERVE2 is absolutely fantastic for science fair projects, it lets students “learn, do, and demonstrate.” There is no other product like this on the market!”
