Resistor 100k ohm
Resistor 100k ohm
You'll need as many resistors as you want to have countries. These are for the capacitive sensors.
×8
Rotary Encoder Module
×1
Capacitor 0.1 µF
This is to debounce the rotary encoder module. You don't need it if your rotary encoder works fine.
×2
Wolrd Globe
×1
Metal Pins
You'll need as many pins as you want countries. These are for capacitive sensing, so make sure they are conductive.

Breadboard view

This is a breadboard view of the hardware.
Note that the "capacitive sensing" part needs to be duplicated as many times as you have countries. Here I've only put 2, but normally in my case there should be 8.
