translucent touch pots

...well, sort of. Here are shots of two of the more promising types of pots that spectrasymbol sent, showing the relative translucence.


This shows the yellowish type that I think has the best tactile feel.


This shows it sticky-side-up


This is a wider type with a sort of grid of wires inside, and on ly 2 leads. The surface of this one is kind of like mylar. I tested it for capactiance and resitance. The pad appears to be divided into 4 distinct horizontal areas, giving values of 6, 5, 4, and 3 near the bottom. I'm not sure if you can see but it is sort of split down the middle but both halves give the same readings. On a capacitance setting it looksed like the values were greater in range but it was hard to get steady readings. Maybe I just need a data sheet on this thing.
