The Touch Board is designed as an easy-to-use platform for a huge range of projects. Use the Touch Board to change the world around you by turning almost any material or surface into a sensor. Paint a lightswitch on your wall, make a paper piano or create a custom interactive surface. Connect anything conductive to one of its 12 electrodes and trigger a sound via its onboard MP3 player, play a MIDI note or do anything else that you might do with an Arduino or Arduino-compatible device.

Pre-programmed
This Touch Board is shipped with pre-programmed audio guide. It's never been easier to start making with an Arduino-based product.

Touch and Distance Sensing
Turn any conductive material into a button or distance sensor. Use Electric Paint to print a button onto an interactive book, make a proximity sensor with a spool of conductive thread or turn the wall of your classroom into an interactive map!

MP3/MIDI and More
An Arduino that plays music! The Touch Board can play MP3 files off of the microSD card, work as a MIDI synthesiser and even send MIDI information to another device (like a laptop or iPad). Connect up a speaker to the 3.5mm audio jack and get going!

Arduino Leonardo
The Touch Board is like a supercharged Arduino Leonardo. Program it just like an Arduino, use your existing code and your favourite shields, but don't forget to check out our awesome libraries and support.

Battery-powered
The Touch Board comes with a LiPo battery charger. Connect your LiPo, put your project in a box and charge via USB. LEDs on the board indicate charging status and an ON/OFF switch means you won't run down your battery when you're taking a break.
