Othermill-Engraved Circuit Board Powering Projects at Moogfest @othermachine @moogfest
If you’re attending Moogfest from May 19-22 in Durham, North Carolina, be sure to swing by that city’s downtown CCB Plaza to check out the interactive project RTP Convergence by the Brooklyn-based Floating Point Collective. The project is powered by this Othermill-engraved circuit board and includes among other devices multiple 12-Key Capacitive Touch Sensor Breakouts by Adafruit – so yes, there will be lots of interaction going on at this installation!
Adafruit 12-Key Capacitive Touch Sensor Breakout – MPR121: The MPR121 has support for only I2C, which can be implemented with nearly any microcontroller. You can select one of 4 addresses with the ADDR pin, for a total of 48 capacitive touch pads on one I2C 2-wire bus. Using this chip is a lot easier than doing the capacitive sensing with analog inputs: it handles all the filtering for you and can be configured for more/less sensitivity. Read more.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
