Reading a QProx QT401 or QT501 touch sensor by Nicholas Zambetti

Demostrates how to read the sensor and print to serial port

#include <QSlide.h>

/* create a new QSlide instance
   pin 2: data ready   (drdy)
   pin 3: data in      (sdi)
   pin 4: slave select (ss)
   pin 5: clock        (sclk)
   pin 6: data out     (sdo)
   pin 7: detect       (detect)
   pin 8: proximity    (prox)
QSlide slider = QSlide(2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8);

void setup()
  Serial.begin(9600);       // begin serial communication at 9600bps

void loop()
  if(slider.isTouching())   // if someone is touching the slider
    int x = slider.read();  // read the slider as an integer
    Serial.print(x);        // print via serial port
