Hello again! Welcome to the day of the week where we talk about our new products. Thanks for joining us. We like to begin with a video, then a list of what's new, and close it out. Let's get started.
The door switches are pretty cool. Heck, the muscle sensors are pretty cool too. Come to think of it, nearly every product on our site is at least a little bit cool.
We're now selling the Muscle Sensor v3 on its own. The previous version came with the sensor cable and pads, and was a bit pricier. Buying the board by itself gives you the flexibility of either finding your own pads, using the pads you already own (you bought one of the heart rate monitors right?) or just having an extra because you're cool like that.
I'm not saying these door switches would be a perfect companion to our car horns, but I'm not NOT saying that either. These switches are simply reed switches and magnet combos in neat little packages. They make it easy to implement a contact-less switch on two moving surfaces (like a door, window, cardboard box, etc). If only we had these when making the Oh Fudge!. Classic Rob. Here's a quick demo of the door switches in action:
That is all for this week. If you didn't see the post earlier this week, registration for AVC2015 is now open!
