If you’re a consumer who loves DIY projects, interactive games, tinkering with electronics or just looking for something fun, look no further than the VERVE 2 (created by inXus Interactive). My hubby really enjoys creating things with his own two hands and has been working with engines, motors and electricity for years. So when I saw the VERVE 2 starter kit, I knew he would be intrigued to give it a try.
WHAT IS VERVE 2?
VERVE 2 is a fun, engaging educational toy that brings the world of science and technology to budding creators of all ages to learn, do and demonstrate in new and highly innovative ways (i.e.: jumping, swinging, slapping and even touching hands). VERVE 2 dramatically lowers the barrier to entry for learning about physical computing systems and provides an exciting medium to ‘learn by doing.’
The applications with VERVE 2 are limitless for creative minds, and with VERVE 2, people can come up with all kinds of educational and entertaining ways to use the included sensors to play their games, demonstrate their project, solve problems, teach, learn, and much more.
SEE THE VERVE 2 IN ACTION….
The standard VERVE 2 kit comes with everything you need to get started:
- Eight plug-and-play sensors
- Connection cables
- A flash drive with software
- Two game applications
- Quick start guide
- Detailed user’s guide
Unlike other interactive technology toys, VERVE 2 requires no programming or electronics knowledge to set up. Plus it gives users the ability to control a computer or the internet with eight different sensors, including force, touch, push button, light, turn, motion, magnet and sound, to do things such as play favorite games or applications, easily send texts and emails, or connect directly to websites.
HOW TO USE VERVE 2
Possibilities include; turning apples, oranges or any other fruit into a musical instrument; making a gigantic video game controller that you step on to play; playing Angry Birds with an actual slingshot; playing Guitar Hero with a 2 x 4 or tennis racket; and making a burglar alarm that sends the user a text when their parents enter their room.
As part of its empowerment mission, inXus Interactive makes fun and easy-to-use technology products such as the VERVE 2 that allows everyone to enjoy, explore, and learn about technology.
The VERVE 2 makes a great gift for do-it-yourselfers, students, and gamers who would enjoy creating fun projects yet don’t necessarily have programming experience.
With VERVE 2— If you can imagine it, you can make it!
