Have you ever wondered why you can’t interact with your computer in a better or more natural way?
If you are an artist, DJ, graphic designer, musician, or if you are in a scientific lab or want to design a better way for cashiers to handle checkout at the counter…
Until now you have had to go through a very expensive and painful process to design the kind of input which suits your specific needs.
The unique solution?
Sensel Morph uses 20,000 sensors and “custom overlays” to transform into almost any kind of input you require.
What is incredible about the Sensel Morph is how sensitive the sensors are. They can pick up the effect of a trailing end of a paintbrush, or the depth of pressure when someone plays a note on a keyboard.
Sensel Morph enables you to design your own overlay, or to share overlay designs from the community of users. If you are a DJ you can view the interfaces created by other DJ’s. If you are a music producer, you can browse overlays made by your peers. Or you can make your own and print it on paper to test it out.
Because of the 20,000 sensors, Sensel Morph, can adapt and you can even swap out overlays to change how you use it.
Who are the makers behind Sensel Morph?
Sense Morph is a true technology innovation. Early adopters will want to know that the team has a strong background including going through Stanford’s StartX program. The founders studied at Princeton, NYU, and Stanford. Aaron and I talked about the benefits of participating in StartX.
StartX is a technology accelerator program.
What this means is that before Sensel Morph came onto Kickstarter, they got a lot of feedback from technology veterans who provided insight on how to hone the focus, provide quality, and ensure that they communicate clearly and exceed the expectations of early adopters.
As backers and early adopters, this can give us a lot of confidence that Sensel Morph is going to do what is promised, and that there is a roadmap of making it better over time.
What can we learn from these makers?
Aaron was very generous in sharing his crowdfunding journey with Maker Paradise. You can listen to the audio interview here, right under the image at the top of the post.
In the interview you will learn about:
* Honing your focus
* Clearly identifying target markets
* Demonstrating your products in person
* Participating in a startup accelerator
* Press embargo as a way to line up the release date of articles to time with the launch of your crowdfunding campaign
