Build your own sensor project with Verve2


I have a webcam mounted on my front porch that clicks on when it detects movement. How does it do that? I don’t know. Maybe it’s magic.

The folks at InXus Interactive know about all kinds of sensors, including those that respond to motion, light, temperature and touch. And they can help you learn about sensors with the Verve2, a control box that connects to a variety of low-cost sensors.

The Verve2 connects to a computer to collect and log data delivered by the sensors. With the Verve2 kit, you can build game controllers, security monitors and other projects that are fun, educational and even practical. And data collected by the sensors can be analyzed in your computer and posted online.

InXus is currently collecting pledges at Kickstarter to finance production of Verve2 kits. A $45 pledge will get you a starter pack that includes the controller and a light sensor. For $5 more, you’ll get a kit with seven different sensors.
