Piezo elements are small devices that can turn vibration into electrical current and vice versa. In this short exploration, we examine how Piezo elements can be exploited to create some unique sensing objects.
The sensing objects we created are: Silicone hair, silicone blob, spring, fur and water balloon. This video shows a small board with each of the objects driving an LED.
These boards are pedagogical tools for enabling a better understanding of physical computing.
