Bare Conductive’s Electric Paint is just like any other water-based paint, except that it’s electrically conductive. This means that you can paint sensors directly onto most materials.
When used alongside the Touch Board, an easy-to-use Arduino@Heart microcontroller, it gives you the ability to turn almost any material or surface into a sensor.
The Touch Board Workshop Manual will help you organise and lead a workshop using Electric Paint and the Touch Board. It takes you through basic concepts, setting up, and provides tips and guidelines for running a workshop.
