Optical Drum Pad- Preliminary
Single optical drum pad
For the 905 interfacesAll plastic construction
DescriptionCurrent Designs' fMRI drum pad for use in the human brain mapping project. It is non-magnetic, non-electronic, and entirely made out of plastic, so will not add noise to the images or raise safety concerns in the MR/MEG room or similarly demanding environments. The fiber optic drum pad with the FIU-905 sends MIDI over USB, similar to a standard drum pad. It supports the velocity signal so harder taps produce louder sounds.
- Handheld for the FIU-905 interfaces
- 5 in x 5 in x 1.5 in (13 cm x 13 cm x 3.5 cm)
- 10 ft (3 m) long fiber pigtailed connector
What Else Is Needed
This handheld response device needs an electronic interface to function -- that converts the optical signals to standard computer interfacing signals. In most cases you will also need a long optical fiber extension bundle to allow this device to be used at a distance from the interface unit. Examples of the interface and bundle are shown below in the Related Products section.
|This item contains no metal, nothing electronic, and nothing magnetic. It can be used safely in the magnet room.|
