Touché, and Water as an Interface

After experimenting with learning how Touché could be used to interact with plants, I wanted to see how I could use it to interact with water. 

In the Touché paper, the authors demonstrate that the sensor is capable of detecting how a user is touching the surface of, or submerging their hand in water. The system is able to distinguish among a variety of touch interactions: no hand, 1 finger, 3 fingers, and hand submerged:

Talking to Plants: Touché Experiments

As I mentioned in a previous post, I was really pleased to see that the ESP-Sensors project had included code for working with a circuit based on Touché

I had earlier come across other implementations of Touché for the Arduino, but unlike the ESP project, none of them utilized machine learning for classifying gesture types.

Touché is a project developed at Disney Research that uses swept-frequency capacitive sensing to "...not only detect a touch event, but simultaneously recognize complex configurations of the human hands and body during touch interaction."
