CapacitiveBoard (CapBoard) is a capacitive sensing prototyping board based on Arduino Nano. CapBoard allows to transform any conductive object in a capacitive sensor able to detect the touch of a person.
The board makes it possible to connect up to nine different conductive objects; also, it has eight analog inputs that can be used to connect potentiometers or other types of sensors.
If connected to a laptop, the board sends the data relating the state of the sensors via the serial connection. Currently CapBoard has been interfaced with Pure Data, Max/MSP and Processing.
By programming CapBoard you can create 8-bit standalone DIY synths controlled by sensors and knobs or by touching the objects connected to it. The board is equipped with a LED connected to the digital port number 13, while port 9 is free and can be used to connect a speaker or an audio cable to generate sounds through the Arduino tone() function or using the Mozzi sonification library for Arduino.
Obviously, it can be also connected to any other environment and software capable of receiving data via a serial connection. Here is available a demo video
