Touch Board Lets You Create Projects That Turn Touch Into Sound


Touch Board is a DIY toolkit designed for letting you use the world around you as a sensor.

Touch Board lets you connect anything conductive to one of its 12 electrodes and trigger a sound via its onboard MP3 player, play a MIDI note or do anything else that you might do with an Arduino or Arduino-compatible device.

It’s being developed via a Kickstarter project that is already fully funded. Here’s a video intro:

 Key Features:

  • Touch sensing
  • Distance sensing
  • No programming required
  • Arduino-compatible
  • Works great with Electric Paint
  • MP3 Player / MIDI device
  • MicroSD card socket – Change the sounds just by changing the card
  • Standard 3.5mm audio jack – Works with headphones and speakers
  • Lithium Polymer (LiPo) – Stand alone projects that recharge via USB
  • HID capable – Turn the Touch Board into a keyboard or mouse

See the project site for more details.
