Now a days, lots of projects involves use of touch inputs as switches or sensors. Particularly, students are very crazy about using bananas or apple or a inked paper as switch for their DIY projects. So, We thought to include 12 capacitive touch inputs in evive.

It uses MPR121 IC with auto calibration feature for enabling touch inputs. It communicates to Arduino MEGA 2560 over IIC communication.
Along with TFT screen, buzzer, plug and play interface and touch, lots of interesting projects can be made.
