    Cool! Very curious how it works when not connected to a laptop. I’ve had bad luck with wearable capacitive touch sensors. they work fine with the CPU tethered, but don’t when running on batteries… :-(

    The circuit must be connected to earth ground. When not tethered to the computer, I clip Flora’s GND to a piece of copper tape stuck to an electrical conduit, heating pipe, or my metal desk leg. =]
