Touch sensor key paddle


    Touch sensor paddle: As mentioned in a previous post I originally used touch sensors for testing the Python keyer. For comparisons sake I decided to mount these sensors in the shape of a paddle. The ‘feel is different than when using a real key or paddle. Instead of pressing side-to-side, the finger and thumb are positioned close to the sensors and moved in to touch one or the other lightly. Not much can be said for this concept, except that it more-or-less works.  One additional wire is needed, as the sensors require power.
