Teste Touch – it starts

April 16, 2008

I can already tell that this is going to be a fabulous project. Basically, it is a pair of 2 foot wide testicles hanging from the ceiling in a 12 foot tall ball sack. ‘Testy Touch’ is sensitive to both temperature and touch. It responds by recoiling towards the ceiling… much as real testes do! Hopefully, the testicles will also vibrate at your touch… and there may be some audio involved as well.

It is inspired by the real interactivity of the autonomic nervous system.

Materials: 1 DC motor, chicken wire, stretchy fabric, Arduino microcontroller, QT113 touch sensor, 2 vibrating motors, Daisy MP3 player from Make
