In a similar way that the rear of Sony’s new PS Vita, is touch sensitive. Senus has developed a new iPhone 4 case which provides a user with touch sensitive controls on the rear of their iPhone device.
The Sensus iPhone case
is equipped with touch capacitive sensors built into the back and right
edge of the protective case which are then connected to the iPhone
through Apple’s 30 connector on the bottom of the iPhone 4 and 4S.
connection provides immediate response times and the power needed to
run the dual microprocessors within the Sensus iPhone case, making it
perfect for responsive gaming. Its developers explain:
now, the touchscreen has been the only input for iPhone. Controls have
been limited to your fingers interacting with the screen, or mediocre,
external generic bluetooth devices that are bulky and inconvenient. With
Sensus, games now have more variables for controls. Not only will
Sensus enhance existing games, but also create a whole new genre for
game interactions. Sensus is the game changer.”
Sensus iPhone touch sensitive case is now available to pre-order for $59
and is expected to ship in the first quarter 2013, and has been
designed for Apple’s older iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S smartphones. No
information is available at the present time as to whether Sensus is
developing an iPhone 5 version of the touch sensitive case.
Sensus has also developed an SDK for their new touch sensitive iPhone case, and more information is available from their website.
