I want to build a pair of "friendship lamps". I'm going to model this lamp after this commercial example. I need a discreet way to activate my lamp. In the linked example it appears the user just touches the wood.
- How exactly would you all guess the linked example is detecting touches through wood? Force sensor?
- Any other ideas/suggestions to go about detecting touches discreetly and reliably?
very relevant thread: Sensing touch through a piece of wood - Project Guidance - Arduino Forum
I'll explore this route for my project unless anyone has further suggestions.
