K-Bow sensor diagram
  • XYZ 3D Accelerometer - measures the playing force and angle of the bow
  • Hair Tension Sensor - detects how hard the bow presses against the strings
  • Grip Pressure Sensor - gives a measure of how hard you are gripping the bow
  • Bow to Fingerboard - a measure of the distance you are playing from the fingerboard via the antennas embedded in the bow
  • Bow Length - by interacting with the included fingerboard emitter, an Infrared light sensor shows the distance from the bow frog to the strings of the instrument
