the company behind Sensus™ (getsensus.com)
- the world's first mobile case that expands the user interface from the
front screen to the sides and entire back of the iPhone®
through variable pressure technology - announced today it has begun
shipping dev kits to approved developers.
"We're thrilled with the development community's response to Sensus and
the opportunities for ap discovery, usability, and monetization it can
offer to studios of any size," said Joel Stewart, VP of Engineering for
Canopy. "We've put this technology into the hands of developers and have
seen incredible experiences emerge that will fundamentally change how
the industry defines usability and interface design in mobile apps."
Sensus is a protective case first. It has touch sensors built in that
allow users to interact with apps from the back and sides of their
mobile device. New "variable pressure" technology detects that a user is
pushing, and to what degree of force they are pushing -- technology that
adds a whole new variable and dimension to interaction with apps. Sensus
expands possibilities in accessibility, gaming, productivity tools,
maps, and more - the entire ecosystem of mobile applications.
Each Developer Kit includes a Sensus case for iPhone 5/5S and a Sensus
software development kit (SDK). The SDK includes multitouch and gesture
recognition APIs, plugins for popular platforms such as Unity and
Xamarin, as well as many new components for working with pressure data.

partner companies to meet with its team at International CES in Las
Vegas, January 7-10, 2014, booth number MP40023.
Canopy is a Minneapolis-based technology innovation company made up of a
dedicated and inspired team of people devoted to creating technologies
that simply make life better. Canopy's latest product is Sensus, the
world's first smartphone case that transforms the back and sides of your
phone into a useable surface and adds variable pressure sensitivity.
