Last semester at Physical Computing class I created and designed a project that explores conductive ink. The project was some kind of a musical player that the "buttons" were made from conductive ink drawing:
In one of the versions I explored capacitive sensors. Capacitive sensors are sensors that work from a short distance with the user's hands.
This semester in project development I want to continue to explore the ink and applying it to create sensors. When I searched for different projects that were created with the ink, I mostly found it to be used to light LEDS or as musical instruments.
What I didn't really find is a usage of the ink with motors. I want to create some kind of a figure or a robot that has hinges that will move in harmony with the human in front of it. In every hinge there will be a sensor that will affect and move that part.
