pi cap

The Pi Cap adds precise capacitive touch, proximity sensing and high quality audio to your Raspberry Pi.

Connect your Pi project to the physical world. Create sensors by connecting Electric Paint¬†or anything conductive¬† to one of the Pi Cap‚Äôs 12 electrodes to control audio, video or connect¬†to the internet. Make a¬†MIDI¬†piano, an¬† interactive wall, a proximity sensor ‚ÄĒ you decide. Our Raspbian package contains code examples for C++, Python¬† and Node.js.

‚ÄĘ Capacitive touch and distance sensing
‚ÄĘ High quality audio output
‚ÄĘ Tutorials to help you get¬†started
‚ÄĘ User-¬≠programmable RGB LED
‚ÄĘ Multi function button
‚ÄĘ Prototyping area¬†with GPIO¬†breakout
‚ÄĘ Compatible with Raspberry Pi A+, B+, Zero¬†(or¬†any¬†Pi¬†with¬† 40 pin GPIO connector)
‚ÄĘ Powerful C++, Python and¬†Node.js¬†libraries¬†and¬†examples
