Wouldn't life be a whole lot more fun if you could mod regular objects and turn them into something that gives you a more interactive experience? Like, say, turning your bike into a driving simulator or a pen into a virtual slingshot?

Normally you'd need a bunch of hardware, some technical knowhow, and more than just basic programming skills to make it happen. The folks behind VERVE believe otherwise and are giving you the chance to put your own controller together by providing you with a set of plug and play controllers, even though you don't know the first thing about programming.

With VERVE, you'll be able to use motion, touch, and force sensors alone or together to customize and make physical objects virtually interactive. The basic kit will cost you $99, but you can opt to get additional sensor bundles so you can do more with what you have.
