I always loved working with interaction design and providing cool user experiences. I figured I needed to learn how gestures and touch based input should work if I want to do cooler things so I created this touchpad sensor using a Texas Instruments MSP430. I used the capsense library to program the wheel and read out touch events to a very simple GUI. Another cool thing, is this entire project is super low power, in the order of nano-amps without the LED's.
