Add precise capacitive touch, distance sensing and high quality audio to your Raspberry Pi A+, B+, Zero and later (any Raspberry Pi with a 40 pin GPIO connector). Connect Electric Paint or anything conductive to one of the 12 electrodes to control sounds, video and more. Connecting the physical world to the digital world is easy with our fully featured libraries and our extensive online tutorials.
The Pi Cap software is in the official Raspbian repository, so installing all the software you need is as easy as Pi. This also means you'll get updates through apt-get, just like you do with the core Raspberry Pi packages.
