Digital Tinkering – CapacitiveSensor

This week I have been working on concept developments, and even though I have not chosen a concept to develop further I shall exploring the different way's I can bring those interactive elements to life. The concept " " has a element that can be replicated by using a CapacitiveSensor in it's simplest form to... Continue Reading →

Digital Tinkering – Piezo

Project 04 This week I have followed another activity from the Arduino Projects Book. This project utilises a photoresistor that will be used to detect the amount of light across its surface, by moving a finger across the light will change the voltage on the analog pin and which determines what frequency the piezo plays....
