Robonova-1: Tsukumo Starts Sales of New Sensors

Tsukumo Robot Kingdom in Akihabara just started selling two new sensor options for the Hitec Robonova-1. Both sensors are sourced from Hitec Muliplex Japan, so apparently they are officially supported products compatible with the Robonova-1 humanoid robot.

The first sensor, pictured left, generates a digital sensor output signal when touched. The sensor substrate is only 12.9x29 mm. The second sensor is a peak sound detector that generates a signal if it hears a loud noise like clapping hands.

Both sensors are priced at 2,000 yen on the Tsukumo Robot Kingdom website.

    You’ll have to check with Hitec in the US. Tsukumo is a distributor here in Japan, so I’m sure they get the options from Hitec Japan which might have a different roll-out schedule from Hitec US. Let me know what you find out.
