CapacitiveBoard (CapBoard) is a device based on Arduino Nano that allows any conductive object in a capacitive sensor 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 and Processing through a special Arduino sketch.
By programming CapBoard you can create 8-bit standalone synth 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 library.
Obviously, it can be also connected to any other environment and software capable of receiving data via a serial connection. Here is a Demo Video
