I want to automate some testing that uses captouch as the interface for the human user. I would love to use an Arduino or similar's GPIO to create the equivalent press and release events from a finger. Is there some material that can be used here such that it would cause a press event when I set the GPIO to high? I would like to avoid any mechanical solutions that involve moving things. Ideally, I would tape the material onto the place where the button is and run my fake human code on the Arduino.

Had a hard time wording that, hope it makes sense. Also, I'm pretty ignorant with the electronics for a captouch system given that I'm a software guy...be gentle :pray:
