The Touch Board is the easiest-to-use Arduino device on the market today. It can make your projects interactive, responsive, smart or just fun. Paint a light switch on your wall, make a paper piano or create a custom interactive surface.
The Touch Board has been specifically designed for capacitive touch MP3 and MIDI capability and comes preprogrammed as an MP3 player. So anyone can use it straight out of the box with no computer and no programming required. Simply power the board by connecting a micro USB cable, press the reset button, and touch each of the electrodes to listen to the audio guide. It's never been easier to start making an Arduino-based project.
The Touch Board's 12 electrodes can be extended to create individual touch sensors using Electric Paint or anything else that conducts electricity. Each of the electrodes is a capacitive sensor, so you can calibrate them to change their sensitivity. This means you can make them respond to direct contact (touch), or you can make them super sensitive, so they can detect a hand - or another conductive object - from a distance.
