How to make a simple capacitive toggling touch sensor using an AT42QT1012.
This video shows you how to make a simple yet effective capacitive touch sensor. These sensors are easy to make and are affordable (under for all the components and IC). Some of the uses for a touch sensor such as the one shown here can be an on/off switch, user input switch to a circuit, and multiple sensors can even be used to make an instrument.
The uses for a touch sensor are vast, and this video will show you everything you need to get started with making and using touch sensors!
