  • Such an inspiring idea! I've recently bought a load of soft pots to make thin interface for photoshop and I'm considering this, thank you.

    Question though, not directly addressed I think. When the soft pots are not stimulated with pressure on the track, you get random noise values. In fact, there must be some reading at all times from the component, and as there is no knob or slider, I imagined this would either be random or default to either extreme edge.

    You mention that when not used with an actuator, and "with the addition of a pull-down resistor they make really nice touch interfaces" the reading should be stable? I'm very novice at microelectronic FYI, coder by trade ;) Also, I assume you had some additional actuator for the keyboard project, to signal that a key press was being made? I'll probably have to do this too, how did you achieve it?

No public wish lists :(
