I am tearing apart a SONY HT-XT1, which has capacitive buttons to put it in a different case for a project:
I've taken it apart already and am now met with a motherboard with 3 pads on it. Touch the pad and the switch flips. I want to be able to control these buttons with an arduino, but I'm not sure how exactly to proceed. If you touch it with anything like a long wire or a cherry switch terminal, it flips the switch. I'd rather have some electronic way to control this over some mechanical contraption. I've never worked with capacitive buttons before so I have no idea where to start. Any thoughts would be appreciated, thanks!
