About Electric Paint
Your design and electronics projects are about to change forever with this easy to use electrically conductive paint. Paint circuits or use as a conductive adhesive on almost anything including paper, plastic, textiles and conventional electronics.
About the Touch Board
Turn your Electric Paint creations into interactive masterpieces. Connect Electric Paint to its 12 electrodes to trigger sounds through its MP3 player, trigger a MIDI note or do much more. Find well-documented code and libraries for optional programming on the Arduino IDE.
Designers and Engineers
Test sensors and build touch or proximity prototypes. Follow our extensive tutorials to help you tune our hardware to your needs. Create a painted MIDI instrument or a custom gaming interface.
Studio PSK’s Polyphonic Playground created a large scale space where every surface was a musical interface.
Touch Board Proto Shield
The Touch Board Proto Shield provides an easy and robust way to add functions to your Touch Board, and a multitude of ways to connect to your electrodes. It features screw terminals for wired connections, a convenient ground plane for using shielded cable, a prototyping area and all pins brought up to the shield for your project.
Printed Sensors are precisely screen printed with Electric Paint and coated with a clear seal, making them smudge and water resistant. They can be bent to create 3D sensors or cut into custom shapes to fit your project. Each sheet has 16 exposed (unsealed) nodes, which can be connected to a variety of boards and clips. The pattern on the Printed Sensors has been specifically designed and tested by us for touch and proximity sensing projects.
