Add light to your capacitive sensing projects with the Light Up Board.

The Light Up Board is a small circular PCB with LEDs that can be easily integrated into paper, card or plastic with a lock and twist mechanism. It has 6 capacitive electrodes that can be used as either touch or proximity light switches. Choose from it’s 6 different light modes: touch, dimmer, proximity, dice, candle, or spin. No programming required! The board is powered with a micro USB cable.

Capacitive sensing and light

The Light Up Board is a great introduction to capacitive sensing using light as an output. Use it with Electric Paint, to explore printed sensors and how they can be used to manipulate LEDs.

Out-of-the-box experience

The Light Up Board doesn’t require any programming and works straight out of the box. Simply plug it in to turn touch into light. It’s powered with a micro USB cable*.
