The Adafruit Capacitive Touch HAT for Raspberry Pi allows you to create your very own capacitive touch inputs for the Raspberry Pi. Capacitive touch sensing works by detecting when a person (or animal) has touched one of the sensor electrodes. Capacitive touch is used for stuff like touch-reactive tablets and phones, as well as control panels for appliances, which is where you may have used it before. This HAT allows you to create electronics that can react to human touch, with up to 12 individual sensors.

The HAT has 12 'figure 8' holes in it that can be gripped onto with mini alligator clips. Attach one side of the clip to the HAT and the other side to something electrically conductive (like metal) or full of water (like vegetables or fruit!)

This HAT is designed to be used with all newer Raspberry Pi with a 40 pin header but can be used with the original Raspberry Pi A or B with an Raspberry Pi stacking header.
