Turn a piece of paper into a touch-sensitive lamp
Combine Electric Paint and the capacitive sensing of the Light Up Board, to create a beautiful paper lamp in three easy steps: paint, fold, and power on! No tools, no programming, no special skills required.
Create paper lamps with Electric Paint
The Electric Paint Lamp Kit is a great way to explore Electric Paint and create 3 different paper lamps. The kit contains the Light Up Board, which has 6 sensors. In order to create the lamps, you paint various interfaces and connect the sensors of the board to unlock one of its modes.
The first lamp you get to make is the Touch Lamp. This lamp has a simple on and off switch to power the lights. If you want to have a peek at how it is made, click below.
The Dimmer Lamp uses all 6 sensors of the Light Up Board. Rotate the switch to increase and decrease the brightness. If you want to have a peek at how it is made, click below.
The final lamp, the Proximity Lamp, uses touchless/proximity sensing to increase and decrease the brightness. If you want to have a peek at how it is made, click below.
Explore capacitive sensing with the Light Up Board
The Light Up Board is a small circular PCB with LEDs that can be easily integrated into paper, card or plastic with a lock and twist mechanism. It has 6 capacitive electrodes that can be used as either touch or proximity light switches.
