Touch Spectrum Regular Version (your color choice)!
Deco - Touch Spectrum Version (your color choice)!
Two different styles of the Touch Spectrum. Your color choice!!
"Touch Spectrum" Directions: Place one hand on each metal plate
and the Touch Spectrum will react by creating sounds and light patterns. Or place one hand on a metal plate and have another person place one of
their hands on the other plate and then touch each
of your remaining hands together. Try touching it with only a finger tip,
then place your whole hand on the plate. Notice how the sound deepens as
your hand covers more surface. This occurs because your body
is the conductor for the electrical current and the more surface
you cover the larger the conductive pathway is. This increase in
conductivity creates deeper tones. This exhibit was designed for public
This exhibit is a touch switch controlled sound synthesizer.
Touch switch technology is used to allow devices to be turned on and off
without using conventional mechanical switches which are prone to break-downs.
This exhibit works by transmitting an extremely small amount of low voltage
and low amperage from one plate to another when you provide the pathway
by touching it. This amount is so minuscule that it is
untraceable by conventional voltage meters. The human body is comprised
of water and a number of electrically conductive elements including
- but not limited to - metals; such as Iron, Copper, Zinc and
Magnesium. As our nervous system operates by electricity and electro
chemical interactions we can easily be electrically overloaded. In the
case of this exhibit - semi-conductor devices provide the means to
operate the device with only a whisper of electricity. This electricity
is derived via a solar cell placed in close proximity to an incandescent
bulb within the case, thereby assuring an isolated power source for safe
We created our 1st prototype in 1983. We have been designing, fabricating & marketing versions of this exhibit to science centers worldwide since 2000.
