If you've ever thought about making a poster play your favourite song, giving objects the ability to speak, or creating hidden sensors in your house, then the Bare Conductive Touch Board Starter Kit is for you.
Each kit contains a Touch Board, Electric Paint, and everything you need to start transforming the world around you. There is no need for programming expertise! The Touch Board Starter Kit comes ready to plug and play, so you can create any of its three featured projects right out of the box. The Guidebook will take you through step-by-step instructions, and is packed with ideas, resources, and inspiration for you to build on.
Give life to your imagination! Check out the featured projects below, and start making your world interactive.
Bare Conductive’s Electric Paint is just like any other water-based paint, except that it’s electrically conductive! This means that you can paint sensors directly onto most materials. When used alongside the Touch Board, an easy-to-use Arduino@Heart microcontroller
, it gives you the ability to turn almost any material or surface into a sensor.
