But we’re not here to talk about plants and Twitter. We’re here to talk about the Pi-powered Wonder Pop Controller; a project brought to our attention via a retweet, causing instant drooling.
The controller uses a Raspberry Pi, the Adafruit Capacitive Touch HAT, and copper foil tape to create a networked controller.
Now, I’m sure someone will argue that it’s not the licking of the lollipop that creates the connection, but rather the licking of the copper tape. And yes, you’re right. But where’s the fun in a project titled ‘Pi-powered Lickable Copper Tape Controller‘? Exactly.

Adafruit Capacitive Touch HAT for Raspberry Pi – Mini Kit – MPR121: This touch-able add on HAT for Raspberry Pi will inspire your next interactive project with 12 capacitive touch sensors. Capacitive touch sensing works by detecting when a person (or animal) has touched one of the sensor electrodes. Capacitive touch sensing used for stuff like touch-reactive tablets and phones, as well as control panels for appliances, which is where you may have used it before. This HAT allows you to create electronics that can react to human touch, with up to 12 individual sensors. (read more)
