Capacitive Sensing with Arduino and Bare Conductive Paint

Date: 02/02/2014

Time: 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Location: SPACE

Learn how to control sounds or light just through the wave of your hand in this capacitive sensing workshop with Arduino and Bare Conductive’s Electric Paint.

We’ll be teaching you how to utilise the capacitive sensing library for Arduino, so that pins on the board can detect electrical capacitance of the human body through a sensor that uses conductive paint. Below is a video by our good friends at Bare Conductive in how this can be done:

In this workshop you will learn:

    • How to code in the Arduino programming environment
    • Installing new libraries into Arduino, in this case the Capacitive Sensing Library
    • How to use soft conductive materials such as Bare Paint to create sensors
    • Basic circuit building

To attend this workshop you will need:

  • Since the workshop is at SPACE, all materials will be provided.
  • You may bring your own computer with the latest Arduino development environment already installed, but computers will also be available to use.

For more information please email [email protected] as we would be happy to discuss the workshop with you.
