Light With Capacitive Touch

I decided to work on revising the light from earlier this semester. I wanted to incorporate what I learned from writing about the Captouch sensor into this project.

I first began wiring the Cap Sense sensor by following Adafruit’s examples. This provided a good frame work to then expand upon.

I really struggled with adapting the code to reading a byte of information, which Tom Igoe helped me think through. Even though I had it coded, it would not print the sensor values in the Serial Monitor. 

I originally wanted to use NeoPixels, but there seemed to be some conflict with that library and the Cap1188 library. After discussing with a few of my peers, they had similar experiences eith dealling with both libraries, most notably with the Rotaty Encoder.
