    DIY Arduino Capacitive DDR Pad

    Replying to @Potatobob since replying is broke:Thanks for following this guide, it's nice to see people make use of it ^^As long as the ports on the arduino allow it it's possible to have any number of inputs. It should be noted however that capacitive sensing in general requires a bit of tweaking, especially when we have bigger circuitry. As such, results can vary.The grounding of the Arduino board is very important in capacitive sensing. If using a laptop, try connecting it to the mains or connecting the arduino using a charging cable instead of the usb cable. To stabilize the sensor values even further, you can try insulating the buttons with thin plastic or paper. You might need change resistors if you do this.My guess is that it's a hardware related issue. If both of these solution...

If both of these solutions don't work feel free to message me with the code and I could double check it for you. Let me know how it works out and good luck 👍🏻

    Alright thanks, Yeah I have aluminum foil with bubble wrap sticked to it laying around (normally used for isolation) so it can't come loose. It also feels great on your feet :)Thanks for making this guide, definitely the most easy method requiring only a tiny budget (if you already have the arduino that is) I'll be sure to add my own when it's done :D

    Would aluminum insulation foil be any working alternative to the copper pads?
