Touch Board

The Touch Board is an easy-to-use platform for a huge range of projects. Combine the Touch Board and Bare Conductive Paint and you can turn almost any material or surface into a capacitive or proximity sensor. You could paint a light switch on your wall, make a paper piano or trigger a sound via the onboard MP3 player. The number of touch-activated projects enabled by combining Touch Board with Electric Paint is only limited by the imagination.
Touch Board is an Arduino Shield-compatible processor board with extra features such as the 12-channel touch/proximity interface and an MP3 player. It appears as an Arduino Leonardo to the Arduino IDE for programming purposes.
