Bingle Jells

Capacitive Touch Piano

# How can we make capacitive touch more festive...and jiggly? Capacitive touch isn’t earth shattering but we knew we wanted to try and build a ludicrous holiday contraption with touch jello and horrible audio quality. The idea of molding wires into Jello was something we were curious about. Those wires were for the capacitive sensor readings used to trigger the Piezo tones. Also, lighting (fiber optic style) the Jello buttons from below seemed like it might make for an interesting visual. Bingle Jells allowed us to explore impractical, transient, high residue based input mechanisms while trying to push them to their breaking point. Sorry, jiggling point. Merry Christmas ya filthy animals.
