HyperDuino Suggestions

Suggestions

Here are some tips and tricks that you might find useful when creating your projects. For technical issues or troubleshooting, see our Technical Support page.

The silicone earring backs are used to secure the posts of the touchpoints in whatever project material you are using. These post backs were chosen for their ability to be easily trimmed down with scissors to accommodate the thickness of the project material, while still leaving enough of the post exposed for a good connection to the touch sensor cable sockets.

Your project will look nicer if you make the hole from the front of the board and then insert the LED from the back side of the cardboard or foamcore of your project. The wires are also less likely to get crossed when they lay flat on the board, neatly folded over from the back of the LED. Avoid pushing the LEDs all the way through the cardboard or foamcore.

A quick way to test your sensor connections, LEDs and wiring is to either (a) Attach only a working 9 volt battery to the HyperDuino, not the computer, or (b) Attach the USB cable for power, but do not open the Media Linker app.

All the LEDs should blink several times. Then, touch each sensor in turn, 2 through 13.  When you touch each sensor, the matching LED number should light up. If nothing works or one of the LEDs doesn’t light up, see our Technical Support Page.
