Dear all, I'm really interested to buy Teleo ( http://www.makingthings.com/products/documentation/teleo_int
ro_user_guide/index.html ) , "a line of hardware tools that provide an easy way to create unique interactive devices, machines, and environments by controlling a wide range of sensors and actuators".
Some doubt (sorry for my englsh!!!):
1 - Teleo Starter Kit (the 189$ one :-) should consist in a "Teleo Introductory Module", that is an hardware interface where it's possible to link analog and digital sensors from 0 to 5 V. It also linkable to pc via USB.
This Starter kit includes also three sensors.
Should this inizial packet be enought to begin?
I mean, if I link sensors to Teleo and Teleo to pc, will MaxMSP be able to recognize it?
2 - If I will build my own sensors (that receive or send an electric voltage between 0 and 5V), is it possible to link them to Teleo?
3 - I'm not able to understand the exactly function of these three sensors included in the Teleo Starter Kit: a push button assembly, a photocell sensor assembly and a lamp assembly.
Are they analog or digital?
What the difference between "photocell" and "lamp"? (My english is not good enought :-)
4 - Does exist others solutions (under 400$ ) near to this one?
5 - Should I buy it? :-)
I'm a C programmer, so I would like to use it for my projects... and with Max of course!
