Capacitive Desk Top
In the not-too-distant-past, I modified my desk top into an infinity mirror. The top glass over laps the ends of the lit area. I don't want to waste the space so I had the idea of adding some backlit capacitive buttons. The buttons will control some low-level items like a desk lamp, soldering exhaust fan, and my Infinity Mirror Desk.
Here's a list of materials I used:
|1||EL Panel||Sparkfun||Sparkfun Page||2||Panel is 5"x5" Cut Down|
|2||Capacitive Controller||MPR121||Larry the Bird|
