Hello Arduino!

by Juan Pablo García Sossa
Simple example to try your Skintimacy with Arduino.


Hello Arduino! is a simple example to start using your Skintimacy with an Arduino board. In this case, Skintimacy will be used to turn Arduino’s LED on and off depending on the touching measures.

You can download the code here: HelloArduino


You will need to connect your Skintimacy to your Arduino Board as shown. In this case you will only need to use Player 1 and Master to turn on Arduino’s LED.

You will need a 9v Battery, two (2) Crocodile Clips, some wires, your Arduino Board and of course your Skintimacy.

Notice that In- on your Skintimacy, goes to Arduino’s GND and to the Battery -

While In+ goes just to the Battery +

Player1 should hold in this case the blue wire’s end and the Master the green wire’s end

Skintimacy players are connected to Analog In on your Wiring. When Player1 and Master touch each other, the WiringLED should turn on.
