More on making conductive ink pads for proximity sensing

Drawing up proximity pads
Drawing up proximity pads

After experimenting with my previous cards I decided to try a larger and denser pad for use as a proximity sensor.

There was a very good little tutorial on the Bare Conductive site so I used that. As you can see above it very sensibly suggests the use of masking tape to make these pads. I followed the instructions and made 4 pads in the end.

Whilst the tape removal wasn’t an entire success it was ok and didn’t stop the pads from working which was good.

I’m planning to post a much larger post around how to get these pads to work for music and how best to get the code up and running too. It might take a little while to get that going though, so hopefully it’ll be in a week or two.

Over indulging in Big Finish

I’ve been listening to a lot of Big Finish lately and, whilst for the most part it’s all very good I’ve realised that there’s always a chance of over indulging on such good listening. I think I may have come to that point recently.

So perhaps it’s time to take a bit of a break from their excellent work. Even possibly for just a week to clear my auditory palette as it were!

What happened to the new Heaven 17 album?

I noticed that they were playing at the O2 Shepherd’s bush next month and remembered that there was a lot of talk early this year about a new album. In fact, when I went to see them play last they even did a few tracks from the new album. So it got me to thinking about where that album had gone.

I hope it’ll still come out as I was really pleased to hear that they’d decided to go back to making studio albums again. So I hope it doesn’t just disappear.

I went to see the Selector last Friday at the Clapham Grand. It was an awesome gig. I was never a massive fan of their stuff although I liked the singles “On my radio”, and “3 minute here”, but it was great to hear them live. They had so much energy and enthusiasm and the crowd loved every minute of it.

I haven’t rushed out to buy their stuff or anything, but I’m glad I went to the gig and saw them. It was well worth it.
