Touch Sensor Gizmo for Playground - Digital Input
The Playground system is an easy way to connect from Crumble, Raspberry Pi or BBC micro:bit to useful Gizmos
The Touch Gizmo provides an easy way to make an input that is Active (High) when touched, or inactive (Low) when not touched. Simply use one of the connection cables to connect from the Playground to the Gizmo.
Although called a a "touch" sensor, this is truly a capacitive sensor and so doesn't actually require a direct contact. See how thick the paper or cardboard can be before the Touch sensor cannot detect your finger
