Ham Spot Bits: Touchy Feely

Arduino Nano capacitive touch lamp control proof of concept. I salvage a lamp from Goodwill and retrofit it with LEDs instead of Halogens. Implements a debounce algorithm to help prevent false triggers. This will later be transformed into an interactive lamp with various lighting modes.

Ham Spot Bits: Arduino Nano Onboard

In this segment I unbox my newly arrived Arduino Nano 3.0 from Gravitech.us and sort out a wire kit I purchased.  

After some experimenting with the Arduino Uno I decided it would be useful to have a breadboard mounted microcontroller.  I ran across several Arduino variations that mounted directly to a standard breadboard.  After some feature comparison I chose the Nano because its basically identical in features to the Uno I already have.
