Campaign Launch: 16th September 2019 Trill is a new family of touch sensors coming to Kickstarter on 16th September. Brought to you by Bela, Trill sensors use capacitive sensing to precisely track finger movements making it quick and easy to create beautifully responsive touch interfaces. Trill sensors are designed to make capacitive touch sensing easy to integrate into music, art and interactive projects.
With this kickstarter we are launching three types of sensor (technical details below):
- TRILL BAR, a slider that can sense up to five touch points
- TRILL SQUARE, a touch pad that senses two axes of movement
- TRILL CRAFT, a 30-channel breakout board that lets you make your own touch interfaces out of anything conductive
Trill sensors use I2C, meaning they are compatible not only with Bela but with a variety of popular maker boards. Trill comes with everything you need to get started, including a library for both Bela and Arduino, and examples for visualising and making sound with the sensor signals. Trill is a versatile sensor that can be used in a huge range of applications and products. Trill is open hardware, and the firmware is under a CC-BY-NC-SA license.
