The Touch Board Starter Kit contains everything you need to connect your surroundings to the digital world.  Use it to change your environment by turning surfaces, objects, or spaces into sensors.  In the box you'll find a Touch Board, Electric Paint, essential components, and a Guidebook featuring a range of project ideas and inspirations.  Follow the Guidebook's step-by-step instructions to creat three featured projects that turn touch into sound using the contents provided.  The Touch Board is preprogrammed to trigger MP3 tracks so no programming or electronics experience is required.  The Touch Board Starter Kit comes ready to plug and play, and is supported by a growing range of tutorials, visual guides, and project examples online.  Whether you're an absolute beginner, a programming pro, or just looking for a great gift for the tinkerer in your family, this kit will let you start making your projects interactive in no time.

The Projects:

  • Graphic Sensors: This project demonstrates how to make an interactive wall graphic using the Touch Board and Electric Paint.  Follow instructions to learn how to add personal stories and sounds to an image.  Bedtime stories will never be the same once you've painted such an engaging interface on your wall!
  • Objects as Sensors: In this example, we show you how to set up your Touch Board to give voice to the objects around you.  You can record a message about which vitamin to take, how often to water your plants, or even link your favorite song to a photo frame.
  • Sensing Spaces: This project explores large-scale sensors in the built environment.  Use the Touch Board and Electric Paint to create an alarm sensor capable of detecting a sneaky intruder crossing a threshold.

About Electric Paint:

Electric paint is a unique platform for discovering, playing with, reparing, and designing with, electronics.  It can be used as both a liquid wire, and as a conductive adhesive.  The handy 10ml tube allows you to draw circuits and attach small components to your projects, while the 50ml jar is great for painting or screen-printing graphical sensors.  Electric Paint is nontoxic, solvent-free, and water-soluble.

About the Touch Board:

The Touch Board is a tool that allows you to connect almost any surface, object, or space to the digital world.  You can transform any of the board's 12 electrodes into sensors to trigger MP3 tracks or MIDI notes.  The board works with the Arduino IDE platform, which means you can upload or modify code, and use digital and analog pins as you would on an Arduino board.
