Create your own Simon Says game with DIY Electro Dough and Arduino! - do it yourself

Getting Started

The goal of this Instructable is to turn your electro dough into a touch capacitive button with Arduino using the CapSense arduino library and then using it to create a Simon Says game. We’ll be using a capacitive start button and three capacitive buttons for our game.

You will need:

Start Arduino Kit

The Start Arduino kit contains these components that you will need:

Lots of Jumper Wires

3 x LED

1 x Buzzer

4 x 1M resistor

1 x Breadboard (to house all our resistors)

Also download the CapSense Arduino Library http://playground.arduino.cc/Main/CapacitiveSenso...

Make some 'Electro Dough' - you can find the recipe on our website http://tinyurl.com/muy8uxf

Step 1: Setting Up

Setting up: Once you download the CapSense library, unzip the file and put it into the Arduino > Libraries folder. Open Arduino and you should see the library if you go to Sketch > Import Library. Click on the CapacitiveSensor library to import it into your sketch.

Step 2:

Mix up your electro dough and create your doughy scene. The electro dough recipe can be found here http://tinyurl.com/muy8uxf. The LEDs that accompany our buttons have polarity and will need separated positive and nevagtive legs so you will need both conductive and insulating dough to complete the circuit.

The electro dough works like the breadboard that came with your Arduino but the dough has some resistance in it already so you wont need any resistors with your LED.

Step 3:

Create your own Simon Says game with DIY Electro Dough and Arduino!
