Testing the Softpots
I am using an Arduino Lilypad USB simply because it is the Arduino that I have. I may purchase a different Arduino in the future. When I had first hooked up the soft pots, they were connected to petals A2 and A3 (right beside each other). With that setup, data was bleeding from A2 into A3. I discovered that if I hook them up a petal apart (A2 and A4), and ground the petal in the middle, it fixes the bleeding problem. Values from both soft pots are between 0-1023. They are quite jittery. I then added the FSR and got values 0-5ish. Problems: how to combine the soft pots so they act like one long strip?
