For their new office in California, Alibaba partnered with Wall and Wall to simulate athrough the creation of an wall.
We used Bare Conductive’s capacitive sensing technology and enhanced it with a custom PCB shield and firmware on top of the Touch Board. This enabled us to have dimming capabilities on top of animating leds and triggering sounds.
I designed the PCB in Eagle CAD, fabricated it using my Othermill CNC and developed the firmware in Arduino.
