Halloween Capacitance Sensor

Introduction: Halloween Capacitance Sensor

This is a cool Arduino capacitance sensor which can be hooked up to the Arduino and used as a candy box. The video includes the ability to hook this up to processing for a counter. It only uses a couple of wires and resistors, some foil, and a candy basket.
