8. Touchy-Feely Lamp

Back with a brand-new Arduino starter kit project, Massimo Banzi walks us through the process of making a touch sensor lamp.

Banzi also introduces us to the concept of external libraries for the Arduino. This is an extremely useful tool that should help streamline the development process for beginners and experts alike.

Put simply, an external library can be downloaded and installed into the Arduino development environment. They are essentially a database of pre-written code that can be used in your device to programme certain behaviours. In this case, the eternal library enables Banzi to create his touch sensor lamp quickly and efficiently.
