evive has 12 touch inputs, which are interfaced via the MPR121 chip using IIC interface. These touch inputs can be attracted to any fruit or metal surface and can be used as inputs. However, these inputs are complicated to interface with Arduino IDE but using Adafruit MPR121 library, you can easily interface the sensors.

evive Capacitive Touch Input Pinouts


In this example we will get input from channel 1. We will connect a banana or any other fruit you have to channel 1 and try to detect if someone has touched the banana and display it on the TFT Screen.

Given below is the Arduino script:
