German Team Launches Indiegogo to Make Toys Vibrate

Custom Motion Controlled Vibrating Toys That Communicate Wirelessly


Berlin, Germany -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/24/2014 -- An exciting new communication device with vibrating sensor makes for quite a few design possibilities with the German made Body Interaction BI1. An IndieGoGo campaign has been launched to raise funds for final production, testing and shipping.

Angel investors helping fund the Body Interaction BI1 Vibrating Circuit Board campaign to the next level will be eligible for perks such as thank yous, one interaction board complete with wireless communicator, vibration motor, motion sensor and battery charger, a 3d encasement, an encasement set or 2 board set.

About BI1
The "body interaction 1" (BI1) is a printed circuit board (PCB) with a vibration motor, an accelerometer, a LiPo battery and battery charger and wireless radio frequency (RF) communication. The board can be programmed with the Arduino software.

Delivered with a program (sketch) on board and many sketch examples, designers are able to start right away. They need only upload new programs (sketches) to the BI1.

And for a limited time, designers can design an encasement for the BI1 and send the file 3d to the BI1 Designers until January 5, 2015 including a short description (use case, interaction) and an open hardware license statement. The 3 best designs will get a free BI1 and will be promoted on the body interaction webpage and during this campaign.

The team also understands not everyone may be able to give money to help the Body Interaction BI1 Vibrating Circuit Board campaign, so they ask that those who cannot give monetarily help by spreading the word about the Theatre for the Body Interaction BI1 Vibrating Circuit Board project online through social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr or record a video challenge for Vine, Facebook or Instagram to invite friends to give to or share this IndieGoGo fundraiser. Include #BodyInteractionBoard in all posts.
