Example: Play a bell sound when the sensor is touched.

In this recipe the Button block will trigger the GPIO block to turn on the Touch Sensor. An additional GPIO block will detect when the sensor is touched and will play the sound of a bell (on the tablet or smartphone).

In this recipe the Button block will trigger the GPIO block to turn on the Touch Sensor. An additional GPIO block will detect when a finger is approaching and near the sensor and will play the sound of a bell (on the tablet or smartphone). This is useful if a material like an acrylic board is placed over the the Touch Sensor.
