Capacitive sensing seems to replace often mechanical switches. Is there a way to convert them back to mechanical switches?
Problem at hand is a cooking device with interfaces with the user via the dreaded capacitive touch buttons. If I had mechanical buttons or even better switches I could simply interface this cooking device with my arduino and let my program emulate the button pressed.A set of relays would do this nicely. Now I have those "capacitive touch" button points and have no idea how to use arduino GPIO to fake button pressed.Any ideas on how to interface?
To trigger a button pressed at those dreaded capacitive touch buttons, what I would need to do is to increase capacity (as that is what happens when a finger approaches, right?)
