Bare Conductive Light Up Board



Add light to your capacitive sensing projects 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. Choose from its 6 different light modes: touch, dimmer, proximity, dice, candle, or spin. Changing the modes doesn’t require programming the board and the board powered with a micro USB cable.


Capacitive sensing and light

The Light Up Board is a great introduction to capacitive sensing using light as an output. Use it with Electric Paint, to explore printed sensors and how they can be used to manipulate LEDs.


Out-of-the-box experience

The Light Up Board doesn’t require any programming and works straight out of the box. Paint your sensors with Electric Paint, plug the board in and turn touch into light. It’s powered with a micro USB cable*.

* micro USB cable and Electric Paint not included


6 different light modes

The Light Up Board has 6 different light modes, which you can access by connecting the electrodes together:

  1. Touch
  2. Dimmer
  3. Proximity
  4. Dice
  5. Candle
  6. Spin
