Design your own interactive wall graphics

0.00 USD

This Makerversity DIY project will show you how to make an interactive wall graphic using the Touch Board and Electric Paint. Students can follow these easy instructions to learn how to cold solder and how sensors work. They will also use their creativity to create personal stories and narratives from visual images. The Touch Board is a microcontroller which works like an Arduino, but has some very powerful extra features. Electric Paint is a conductive material which can be painted, screen printed and stencilled onto practically any surface.
