Touch sensor

I was wondering, if i attach crocodile clips to the wires and then banana clips to a conductive material will the touch sensor work, and if it does work can i take it a step forward so it acts like a makey makey?
Thank you


Read up about CAPACITIVE touch sensors. You should NOT have to touch the bare wires. It should work through plastic, glass etc.

Yes, you can extend the wires, but longer or closer together is less sensitivity. You need bigger touch areas.

Try coin sized things (or coins) on a piece of glass. Cellotape a wire to it, and tape the coin to the glass. Turn it over, and connect to the sensor. It should work THROUGH the glass.

Remember that you have to powercycle if you change the sensors. Threshold is set during power-up. Leo..
