[New Partner] Introducing Nexmosphere and their portfolio of sensors and actuators

We’ve just formalized our partnership with Nexmosphere, a provider of rock-solid sensors and actuators that work beautifully with Intuiface on Windows. The following information will enable you to jump on the bandwagon.

Thanks to a few conversations here on the Community, our team was exposed to the Netherlands-based Nexmosphere and their devices. These devices - they call them “Elements” - range from sensors like buttons, RFID readers, and presence detectors to actuators like LED light strips and audio players.

The potential benefits of collaboration for both of our customer bases is fairly off the charts - both in terms of device integration as well as the deep analytics potential of interactivity - so we’ve worked with Nexmosphere to create a robust level of integration. The result is a plug-and-play level of support, making it trivial for Intuiface experience designers to incorporate Nexmosphere Elements in their work.

Live Webinar! On 20-November at 11am New York / 4pm London, Geoff Bessin, Intuiface’s Chief Evangelist, will be joined by Bo Merkx, Nexmosphere’s Application Specialist, to introduce Nexmosphere to the world of Intuiface users. The agenda includes details about Nexmosphere’s product portfolio, a look at the integration with Intuiface, multiple usage scenarios you can build with the integration, and next steps for trying it out yourself. Register for the webinar here. It’s free to attend.

Here are the materials you can use to build your knowledge about the integration:

  • Nexmosphere Interface Asset: Posted to GitHub, ensuring it was easily consumable as open source material. Out of the box it enables communication between Intuiface on Windows and any one or more Nexmosphere Elements. In addition, a drag-and-drop of this IA into an experience will create a data template you can use to send and receive commands from any Element. Enhancements to the interface asset, at the discretion of users, could include the combination of multiple Nexmosphere commands into a single call from Intuiface.
  • Nexmosphere Help Center article: A detailed description of Nexmosphere, the interface asset, the process for using the interface asset, and the X-Script command language used by Nexmosphere. This is the best place to begin your own introduction to Nexmosphere and the integration.
  • “Explore Nexmosphere” Sample Experience: We’ve replicated Nexmosphere Demo Kit XN04 within an Intuiface experience. Connect the actual demo kit to your Windows PC, run this experience in Composer (or Player), and interact with the kit to test the connection and hands-on learn the X-Script command language.

Here is a video of the Sample Experience in action.

Looking to incorporate buttons, RFID readers, audio players and more in your Windows-based experiences? Embracing the value of sensor-driven analytics to better understand your target audience and the success of your deployment? Nexmosphere should be the first place you look. As noted above, check out our Nexmosphere Help Center article as the best place to start.
