Bare Conductive
Welcome to the Bare Conductive community! to share projects and receive help.

Whether you are a designer, engineer, artist, student or educator the Touch Board has more inputs and outputs than almost any Arduino compatible device. It is a powerful prototyping tool which combines Arduino compatibility with robust capacitive touch, distance sensing, an MP3 Player, MIDI functionality and a LiPo battery charger. Make a powerful distance sensor, make an MP3 player or make a hackable MIDI controller, or combine all three!

The Touch Board has 12 electrodes that can be extended to create individual touch sensors using Electric Paint or any other conductive material. Listen to the Touch Board’s pre-loaded audio guide and then listen to your own MP3s by loading on the microSD card. Upload our MIDI controller code and connect your Touch Board to Ableton Live, Garage Band and more.

The Touch Board is as powerful as it is easy to use and can be used and programmed just like an Arduino through the Arduino IDE. We’ve got robust and fully-featured libraries, example code and tons of tutorials so you can take advantage of all of its features. Use your Touch Board to transform the world around you!
