Getting Started with the Touch Board – Bare Conductive. This tutorial is a step-by-step introduction to your Touch Board.

Getting Started with the Touch Board – Bare Conductive

It will take you through powering it up and changing the sounds on your micro SD card, all the way to using our stencil and Electric Paint to create a series of graphical touch sensors on paper! This is the most basic introduction to the Touch Board and is a great place to start if you’re a beginner, or if you want to get acquainted with the board. We will show you how to use the Touch Board’s electrodes as touch sensors with no programming required.

We’ll also show you a few different ways you can use Electric Paint to create interactive graphics. We’ll be posting more tutorials showing how to use your Touch Board in lots of other cool projects, from making proximity sensors, to MIDI devices, and light switches, so make sure to come back for more, or click on the Suggested Tutorials tab above for more interesting projects. Make sure you have a micro USB cable and a micro SD card adapter before you begin! A Touch Board Space Map for Kids – Bare Conductive. Step 1 The project was a ¼ year project at the kindergarden of my 5 ½ year old daughter.

A Touch Board Space Map for Kids – Bare Conductive

We joined forces and created the "Weltraum Computer" meaning "Space Computer". She drew a lot of space related images and then painted a old kid's bicycle box all blue for the sky backdrop. After that she stuck all the images onto the surface. Then she recorded an explanation for each part of the picture with my technical help with Audacity (open source audio software) and loaded mp3s onto the Touch Board's SD card. The Electric Paint wiring was a joint venture between father and daughter. We presented the project to the kindergarten on its 40 year anniversary and as you can see it was very popular!

Step 1 The project was a ¼ year project at the kindergarden of my 5 ½ year old daughter. Make an Enchanted Puppet Show – Bare Conductive. Step 2 Sketch out your design and assign electrodes You should start by sketching out your design.

Make an Enchanted Puppet Show – Bare Conductive

You will need to figure out which electrode corresponds to which conductive thread, so make sure you don't get mixed up! Write down the electrodes you plan to use so you can assign sounds accordingly on the SD card. This project re enacts a scene from the film Napoleon Dynamite. Step 2 Sketch out your design and assign electrodes. Chimes on Scratch. Dance Dance Revolution on Scratch. Make: DIY Projects, How-Tos, Electronics, Crafts and Ideas for Makers.

But what if you want to make a full-on banana piano, and the default MaKey MaKey key presses don’t fit your needs? Among its many magical characteristics, the MaKey MaKey is easily reprogrammable, so you can customize the key-mapping to fit your project. In this tutorial we’ll show you how to use Arduino – the most popular embedded development environment out there – to reprogram the MaKey MaKey and modify which inputs press which keyboard or mouse control. We’ll also talk a bit about that mysterious output header, which you can use to turn the MaKey MaKey into more than just an input device.

November 4, 2014 AT 5:00 pm Instructables user fasaxc only had about 24 hours to make a costume for a party and constructed a playable and wearable giant Gameboy. He made sure he could get a Gameboy emulator running on his laptop and then printed a photo of the front of a Gameboy onto several sheets of paper. It was a quick fix for this costume – he prefers to paint and sculpt. After the glued the papers onto a cardboard box it was time to mount the electronics. The Gameboy’s screen is simply a laptop that fasaxc folded out flat; he used gaffer tape to keep the laptop in place and rested the computer on a cardboard ledge.
