The Light Up Board is a touch dim LED light on a super-thin and circular PCB, with six integrated white LEDs and six gold-plated sensor electrodes. With it you can choose between touch, dimmer or proximity interaction modes and no computer programming is required.
Use one to quickly add light in a difficult to reach spot, demo a lighting control concept, or prototype a design for an interactive lamp.\
The Light Up Board is a great introduction to capacitive sensing using light as an output. Use it with Electric Paint, to explore printed sensors and how they can be used to manipulate LEDs.
The Light Up Board doesn’t require any programming and works straight out of the box. Simply plug it in to turn touch into light. It’ s powered with a micro USB cable*.
* micro USB cable not included
The Light Up Board has 6 different light modes, which you can access by connecting the electrodes together:
The Light Up Board is easy to use and is simple to integrate using the patent pending twist and lock method onto card or plastic, or stick it where you need it using double-sided tape, or adhesive. The Light Up Board also has a realistic candle light, spin and dice mode. Find out more in this video guide. To expand your creative possibilities still further, you can combine a Light Up Board with Electric Paint and other conductive materials. The Light Up Board is Micro-USB-powered by most phone-chargers or power banks, so you can wire it up permanently, or why not make it portable to take on the road with you?
