BLOG | Dalziel and Pow’s Animated Smart Wall

For a show at the Retail Design Expo, brand design agency Dalziel and Pow created a smart wall that responds in surprising ways to touch. They screen printed Electric Paint onto large wood panels to make graphical touch sensors, which activated complex visual projections and audio. 

An impressive total of 48 interactions and over 100 different animations are included on the wall, and displayed with layered projection mapping and animation software. You can read more about their work here.

Combining illustration and projected graphics is a fantastic way to bring images to life, and is something that we’re often asked how to do. To help you get started with your own Projection Mapping projects, we have made a detailed tutorial explaining how you can easily achieve this using our Touch Board and conductive Electric Paint material. We also have a tutorial with the Pi Cap.

If it’s your first time using Electric Paint, get started quickly with our Touch Board Starter Kit which is packed with cool projects that will teach you how our technology works. If you’re already experimenting with Arduino microcontroller electronics and are ready to get serious, then the Touch Board Pro Kit contains all you need to get experimenting with large scale capacitive sensing and printed sensors.
