Capacitive sensing works through most substrates (like the glass in your phone, for example)--so as far as it's concerned, you can use the sensor through the back of sheet. That's nice for two reasons: first, you can draw whatever you'd like on top, and second, actually _touching_ a capacitive sensor turns it into a resistive sensor, which can be a good (but complicating) thing.

Works perfectly.")}}

+This is essentially that same slider, but bent into a wheel shape. It took some doing to come up with an algorithm that could accurately track your finger as it moves around the circle.

This is a graph generated by a little script, that plots the signals from each portion of the wheel over time. If you look closely, you can see the signal passing smoothly from one capacitive region to the other.

This is the basic first-sketch that I followed. A lot of things changed while building the thing, so beware. Because I didn't cap the ends of the central section, it's not rigid, so I put in cable cross-stays on the back to make it stable (it's still fairly wobbly -- no fasteners!). I took out a chunk of the top part of the legs, to create the three-layered system above.

Here's the 4 &times; 8 birch-veneer plywood board, specc'd out to be cut. I had the guys at Home Depot do all of the big cuts -- which they did, albeit, messily. I did the rest with a cheap-o (cordless!) circular saw.

This is the tricky part, the detail of the leg-surface connection. The basic angle I calculated was 68.2&deg;, which worked out reasonable well. If it's too shallow, your legs could bow--too steep, and well, you've just made a more-or-less regular desk. Oh, and I beveled the bottom of each leg so that it stands flat--but that you'd do automatically.
