Interactive Workshop Pack
One box, three projects. Make musical instruments, game controllers, and interactive posters.
Introduce design and electronics through three creative projects.
The Interactive Workshop Pack is a great way to get a group started with design and technology projects. It comes with everything you need to run 3 different workshop activities. Create musical instruments, game controllers, and interactive posters using Electric Paint and Printed Sensors, and use the Arduino IDE to program the Touch Board.
Are you an educator, makerspace, creative agency or professional organisation looking to run a creative computing workshop? Perfect! The Interactive Workshop Pack is the best resource available to anyone who wants to engage individuals from non-engineering backgrounds with electronics.
Play music with paper
Project 1 Use the Printed Instruments Sensors to create a MIDI paper orchestra. Participants connect their Touch Boards to printed sensors, select sounds and play a tune. Take it to the next level by designing your own instruments.
Design game controllers
Project 2 We’ve created a game so you can design the game controllers! Use Electric Paint to paint interfaces, and get playing. For a more advanced workshop, why not modify the code and create your own rules?
Make Interactive Posters
Project 3 Make your presentations interactive. Combine Printed Sensors with the Touch Board, load or record your own sounds, and let your posters do the talking with proximity and touchless sensing!
The Interactive Workshop Pack includes all the tools you need to run three different workshop activities introducing everything from painting sensors with Electric Paint, to programming the Touch Board using the Arduino programming language. Each project comes with complete instructions, and one workshop pack can be run with up to 25 participants. Once you’ve mastered these three projects, you can go on to modify the activities to increase complexity by designing custom instruments and game controllers, or interactive surfaces. The kit does not require any soldering and is recommended both for beginners and advanced users looking for a creative workshop activity. With extensive libraries already available, you can select from existing code examples or modify and program your own interactions.
With Touch Boards, Electric Paint, Printed Sensors, mini speakers, and many more components, you’ll have all the tools required for the three projects provided and much more. The full-color, Guidebook (included) contains step-by-step instructions for completing each activity and is supported with online tutorials, full code examples and troubleshooting in case something goes wrong. These fun 30 to 60 minute activities require no previous programming or electronics experience and will appeal to equally to participants from engineering and design backgrounds.
