Bare Conductive touch board
It is kind of Arduino meets Makey Makey. The Touch Board let's you connect pretty much everything to it. the thing you connect becomes like a sensor.
- You can hook up the board to Garage Band and create a simple paper piano
- You can use it to scroll through pages ( TouchBoard scrolling )
- It also can be used as proximity sensor
- Like for Arduino, you can upload sketches using Arduino IDE
For people that do not yet fully understand MicroController ( like me ) this is a great way to develop knowledge. The board comes with a library that can be donwloaded from the Bare Conductive site. One can extend this libary and mix together sketches.
