The touch sensor is a powerful capacitive proximity sensor that sends a signal to the attached Bits as you physically approach it. The closer you get, the higher the voltage it sends out. Use an alligator lead with one end attached to the gold electrode on the touch sensor, then connect the other end to something conductive like tin foil, conductive foam, or even paint a square of Electric Paint. Once turned on, the touch sensor will automatically calibrate the material to create a custom capacitive sensor off of the module. Fine tune your proximity range using the included screwdriver and use it to detect a cookie thief with the Buzzer or have hands-free control of the Oscillator from the Synth Kit to drive some sweet audio!

    I already supported the Kickstarter of BareConductive. GREAT GEAR. Put me down for this MaxZ. Button Reserve isn't working for me.

  • Steve Marks about 3 years ago

    Me too, this looks like fun, the button is working though. :)

  • Andrew_littleBits about 3 years ago

    Hey @MaxZ and @Steve Marks - we just fixed an issue with the reserve button. It should be working now! Let us know if you run into any other issues.

    Can't wait to test this out! Would it work with the Arduino module and say Processing?
