Permanent Installation for Alibaba HQ, CA, USA

For their new office in California, Alibaba partnered with Wall and Wall to simulate a retail store through the creation of an interactive 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.
