Long have computer geeks dreamed of being able to put touch sensitive controls anywhere. Touchscreens have somewhat taken over the world, and they will most likely continue to do so. However, a new material from Bare Conductive called Touch Board adds sensitivity touch controls to anything. This new material has unique features, more than any other material yet presented to consumers.
There have been countless attempts to market “touchscreen-anywhere” solutions but this Touch Board material is by far the most appealing approach, at least according to us here at Bit Rebels. The material is a liquid that when applied dries up and becomes a distance sensitive touch control that is unlike anything that you have previously seen, we guarantee it. Its properties are almost science fiction-like and the things you can use it for are limitless.
In a series of different projects, the properties of the Touch Board material are showcased in the video below. I think most of you will have your own ideas when you see what it can really do. You can connect pretty much anything to it, and it will work as a touch sensitive conductor that if applied correctly, can be used to play sound, light up LED or act as the foundation of a doorbell. Once you have seen the Touch Board video you will be blown away.
Bare Conductive is a startup company that is working on a series of different innovative technologies, but Touch Board is their most exciting product (according to them). As always, startups are usually in need of money to fund their product development in order to bring it to market. Bare Conductive is one of those companies, and they are looking to raise £15,000 in 30 days. It looks like people really like this new Touch Board material, as with over 23 days left on the campaign they have already raised over £40,000. If you think Touch Board could enhance your life then head over to their Kickstarter page and pledge. The more funding they are able to raise, the more innovative properties they are able to implement into it. I am sure we’ll see a wide arrange of accessories to this material as well if funding is sufficient – Not to confuse you, the Touch Board name refers to the arduino board that drives the materials functions.
