Working with lighting designer and Newlab member Jason Krugman day 21 is a Analogue Touch Matrix. This piece was developed by Jason and together we recreated his piece documenting each step to bring you an Instructables. (coming soon)
The Analogue Touch Matrix uses a simple electronic circuit adapted to include 150 Capacitors and Light Emitting Diodes. As the user presses his/her hand into the panel the respective L.E.D makes contact, completing the circuit. As the pressure is released the circuit is broken and the capacitor discharges creating a fading effect.
