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
