Bluno Nano and CapSense arduino library.

Bluno can easily connect arduino sensors to Android & iOS. Although, this project is not serially connected to Unity on Android, the example code connects to an app created in Android Studio and the Bluno connects to Unity on iOS.

This program uses an initialization stage to calculate a baseline for each screen
printed touch sensor, then uses a multiplier to calculate a touch threshold. To
increasethe correctness of the sensor data, I will implement a touch calibration
step into the setup sequence.

 * CapitiveSense Library Demo Sketch
 * Paul Badger 2008
 * Uses a high value resistor e.g. 10M between send pin and receive pin
 * Resistor effects sensitivity, experiment with values, 50K - 50M. Larger resistor values yield larger sensor values.
 * Receive pin is the sensor pin - try different amounts of foil/metal on this pin
