I won't pretend to understand how the capacitive slider is intended to
work, but reading here:
I was interested in their description of a slider "A slider is a series
of touch buttons cascaded together with overlapping transitions and
designed specifically to track finger position and movement."
As I understand it, the current Anelok slider is actually a linear
slider, not a series of buttons. Are there some alternative layouts of
the PCB track that would make the slider less prone to atomspheric
