Shine On is a simple example to control the brightness of an LED with your Skintimacy.
You can download the code here: LEDSkintimacy
You will need to connect your Skintimacy to your Wiring Board as shown. In this case you will only need to use Player 1 and Master to control the LED’s brightness.
You will need a 9v Battery, two (2) Crocodile Clips, some wires, an LED, a resistance, your Wiring Board and of course your Skintimacy.
First you will need to prepare your Skintimacy.
Connect it to the 9v battery as shown.
Notice that In- on your Skintimacy, goes to Wiring’s GND and to the Battery –
While In+ goes just to the Battery +
Then you connect Skintimacy’s Player1 to Analog In, the LED to a PWM Pin (number 4 in this case), an their respective grounds to gnd.
When Player1 and Master touch each other, the LED should turn on and bright according to the touch values.
