Modular interactive-sensor and lighting system

The Sensacell system transforms architectural surfaces into dynamic interactive experiences. Sensacell capacitive proximity sensors detect people and objects on the other side of barriers up to 2 inches (5.1 centimeters) thick, creating a three-dimensional, multitouch sensing zone above the surface. Additionally, the integrated full-color LED lighting array creates stunning interactive graphics, video, and ambient illumination. The plug-and-play system is based on 6 inch (15.2 centimeter) square modules that can be embedded into surfaces of any size or shape, allowing total design flexibility.

Sensacell arrays can be interfaced with other systems to control sound, light, video, HVAC, and alarm systems via RS232, MIDI, DMX, and TCP-IP. The Sensacell Sensa Tools software allows for the rapid development of customized programs to control various building systems or trigger particular environmental effects.
