    Easy! As an electric wheelchair user I would love to team up a joystick with a magnetic sensor that would ‘trip out’ my own clumsiness at hitting door frames, shop displays etc - most of which have some ferrous element.

    I am keen to have a versatile magnetic field detector, as I am working with electromagnets & field interactions.

  • Shannonisanerd 2016-05-28

    With me going to school this would be a great tool

  • psj33 2016-05-28

    Biomedical RF measurements used in treatments. And it’s be cool to mess around with.

    thanks i think its great keep it up guys

    Currently working with a utility to develop the last ‘foot’ in terms of GPS/GIS and taking various measurements.  By being able to sense precisely a 3D area, where a lineman is doing his thing, would give the engineering staff much more information around various issues on the substation.

    Love t have one

    I would like to try and use this in a self balancing bicycle that I have been designing for physically challenged people

  • jbhassoc 2016-06-11

    Going to try a Tractor Grater orientation sensor with this

    Hello, I am working on simulating the neurological functions of the various parts of the human brain by recreating synaptic signal operation and communication networks, and I could use the Infineon Magnetic Sensor 2GO Evaluation Kit in my electronic sensor (input) circuit designs. Thank you very much for giving us this opportunity for a chance to acquire your Infineon Magnetic Sensor 2GO Evaluation Kit.

    We would like to develop a controller for phase angle shift to continuously provide a constant power source for one of our Power Lab experiments here at the University of Missouri - Kansas City

  • kbogoski 2016-06-16

    I could use this with my robotics club, and FIRST FRC team.  We are a third year them and working hard to learn how to use sensors on our bots.

  • bovi999 2016-06-17

    I’d like one

  • ThomasMD 2016-06-17

    Looks like the ‘jewel’ with which I’d love to experiment (in numerous magnetic particle testing applications). Looking forward to seeing how IT performs…(!)

  • codeboy2k 2016-06-17

    As an engineer doing research in assisted living and mobility aids for disabled people, I would love to experiment with this as a head tracker or head-driven input device. I would be curious to experience it’s sensitivity and resolution as well as it’s noise immunity, and what can be done to either improve it or mitigate any sensitivity to noise, in order to provide a more accurate input signal to a micro-controller.

  • techdcs 2016-06-18

    A great Sensor for monitoring change in position , definitely will try to think of using it in Bio-medical Applications.

  • pregbara 2016-06-18

    This is more than luck; I think am favoured and that joystickis awesome and handy. Thanks to AAC, thanks to infineon

  • MTech 2016-06-18

    I am currently investigating the “Bloch wall” and “bubble” phenomena in magnetics and a 3D magnetic sensor would be very helpful in my investigation.

  • realrookie 2016-06-20

    Developing a handsfree gesture detection system..
    Would love to incorporate one of these.. smile

  • Vishuts6 2016-06-20

    I would love to experiment and tinker with it!!

  • Charl Lotter 2016-06-21

    Looks like a handy tool for detecting magnetic leakages which could influence efficiency.
