Interactive Wall Kit
Create incredible interactive walls and murals
After hundreds of interactive wall projects, we carefully designed this kit to make it easy to plan, prototype, and produce a large-scale project. Alongside the hardware included in the kit, we have extensive digital information and inspiration to kickstart your next project.
Powered by the Touch Board
You might have used our most popular hardware before: The Touch Board! Each Interactive Wall Kit contains one Touch Board that has 12 touch sensors, which are extended with the included hardware.
12 touch sensors = up to 12 touch points on a wall
How does it work?
An interactive wall is created with a material where you apply the graphics on the front and attach the electronics to the back. We recommend using plywood, but you can also use other non conductive materials.
Drill holes through the wall
Once you know where you want the touch points located, you can drill holes through the wall and push screws through each hole.
Attach the Electrode Pads
An Electrode Pad is attached to each screw and will be connected to the Touch Board later.
Paint sensors with Electric Paint
When you are painting your graphics with Electric Paint, you are covering the screw heads. When the paint has dried, it is electrically connected to the Electrode Pad via the screw,
Connect electronics together
With all the graphics done, you connect everything together: The Touch Board is connected to each Electrode Pad with shielded cable. Once done, you are ready to turn the Touch Board on and turn a touch into sound or projection mapping.
Create an interactive sound wall
The Touch Board has on-board MP3 playback, so creating an interactive sound mural is, from a technical point of view, a plug-and-play experience. Simply connect a speaker to the Touch Board, change the sounds on the included microSD card and you are ready to turn touch into sound.Continue reading
Create an interactive projection mapping wall
You can also use the touch points on the wall to trigger projection mapping, allowing you to tell a story or provide an engaging way to learn about a topic. For projection mapping you need to create the animations that you want to project, a projector and a projection mapping software.Continue reading

All of the Electric Paint
The Interactive Wall Kit was designed to create precise touch sensors with Electric Paint, which is an electrically conductive paint that dries at air and room temperature and is non-toxic. The 1L bucket of Electric Paint covers about 16m², more than enough for your wall!Buy now
