There are still a number of tickets available this Saturday for a new class here at Resistor. It’s called Fun with Touch Sensors, and it features a lot of hands on interaction with the kinds of sensors you find in a iPod click wheel or smartphone touch screen. I think it will be a lot of fun, and it should give you some ideas about making your own interactive devices for fun, art, or practical purposes.
Every student gets a kit with a QT1106 Breakout board, a slider module, a wheel module, a small breadboard, a shift register, some LEDs with resistors, and even a plastic box and battery holder!
Here’s Joel’s video showing off the sensors:
