Squishy Circuits can make a fun introduction to coding! Using a microprocessor, users can build a voltage divider circuit to change an output based on the shape of the dough! In fact, our team published a paper on this very topic - Squishy Circuits as a Tangible Interface!
For background information and how to use an Arduino to build Squishy Sound and the Squishy RGB LED Controller, check out our Coding With Squishy Circuits Guide.
Squishy Sound: The Arduino will output a sound based on the resistance of the dough. The higher the resistance, the higher the pitch.
Squishy RGB LED: The Arduino controls the brightness of the red, green, and blue channels on a LED based on the resistance of dough pieces. This allows users to mix the colors. Essentially, this is a giant pixel!

Happy Coding! We'd love to see what you make!
