About Touch Board:
The Touch Board is a microcontroller board with 12 capacitive touch and proximity electrodes, so you can use it to turn any material or surface into a sensor. Extend each of the Touch Board’s electrodes using Electric Paint or other conductive materials to create sensors on a range of objects or substrates. The base of the Touch Board is completely level, so you can easily attach it onto any flat surface.
The Touch Board has an MP3 decoder and MIDI synthesizer, so you can use it as a USB mouse or keyboard, or as a USB serial port or USB MIDI device. It has a 3.5mm audio jack and microSD cardholder.
The Touch Board is based on the Arduino Leonardo and uses the ATmega32U4, running at 16MHz and 5V. You can reprogram it using the Arduino IDE and a micro USB cable. The Touch Board also has a JST connector for an external LiPo battery, a power switch and a reset button.
About Electric Paint:
The Electric Paint 10ml tube is a conductive ink which can be used to repair breaks, cold solder or to draw small scale circuits. Electric Paint is non-toxic, dries at room temperature, and can be applied onto any non-conductive, non-hydrophobic surfaces, like paper, plastic, textiles or wood. The Electric Paint tube is an ideal tool for applying small quantities of conductive ink. One tube can cover up to 0.5m. Electric Paint is water-soluble and can be easily removed with soap and water. For permanent applications, it can be sealed using spray varnish.
The Electric Paint 50ml jar is perfect conductive ink for painting or screen printing sensors. It can be applied like any other water-based paint using a paintbrush, and screen printed to create precise designs and patterns. Electric Paint is non-toxic, water-soluble and air-dries at room temperature. Once dry, Electric Paint can be sealed using spray varnish to make it smudge-proof and water-resistant. One 50ml jar can cover up to 0.8m².
