This is an article which presents a lot of innovative ideas of where a capacitive sensor can be used. It also shows and allows one to realize that in the realm of capacitive sensors there are different kind, like touch sensors and proximity sensors. I really liked that of the combination of a capacitive touch sensor with a mechanical sensor in one. The capacitive gives you the preview of the function and the mechanical finishes the selection. Though... in regards previewing the selection... makes me think of the fact that some capacitive touch solutions ran through a re-calibration scheme if one leaves his finger long enough and thus the preview will be seized. I wonder if this is the case with all solutions out there?
