Well, this is a tiny subset of the kind of work that I wanna do in a while.. making an interactive wall.. Here, I have tried making an interactive wall art.. which responds to touch by glowing..
No conductive fabrics/threads required.. ! just some aluminum foil used for packing food items..
All you need is a controller board (mine is an Arduino Uno).. though if u want some fixed pattern, then you could simply use momentary switches in a tricky way.. or some other switches.. but if you want to try different controls, use a controller board.
So here are the snapshots of the touch response of the wallpiece.. (in my case, its a window piece though.. 😉 )
And the video .. 🙂
There are 2 aluminum foils seperated by thin foam with small holes. The 2 foils on pressing get connected.
Shall be posting stepwise making on Instructables soon.. !
