See our set up in action!!!!
More specifically our project focuses on the awesomeness of Capacitive Sensing to alter OF projections to create an awesome tactile experience!
What the process will involve:
Arduino -> Processing -> SpaceBrew -> OpenFrameworks
What you will need:
Anything conductive you want to detect capacitance with!
First you will want to set up your Cap Sense circuit.
You can create as many inputs as there are digital pins (If you wish to have more you will have to implement a multiplexer TUTORIAL LINK ).
The Cap Sense library allows you to turn two of the Arduino's pins into a Capacitive Sensor i.e. Sensors that can detect the electrical capacitance of the human body!
This allows us to create interesting touch sensors to send input to the Arduino.
Setting up the circuit:
*** It can be good to just test if it is working by having an exposed wire as your sensor!
Download the CapSense library here
After you have downloaded the library copy the folder into your Arduino library folder.
