Using Skintimacy to control Color in Processing


Color is a simple example to modify Color in a Processing Sketch using your Skintimacy.

You can download the code here: ColorSketch
Here you will find a sketch for Processing another one for Wiring / Arduino and schematics like the shown below.


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 Color in a Sketch.

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

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

The RGB Color of the square is controlled through Touch values. Thus when there is a lot of Touch, the square will turn white, and when there is a lack of Touch, it will be black.


The data is transferred to Processing trough the Serial.

Skintimacy players are connected to Analog In on your Wiring. When Player1 and Master touch each other, the square in Processing changes its color.
