new circuit part 3

After talking with people on other forums I came up with this solution, the 3rd in a series of incorrect designs… Maybe three times the charm

Power Switch Idea

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

I wanted to do a “no button” look to my computer, I like the stream lined look of it. So what I will be doing is setting up a touch sensor behind a panel. I did some research on the voltage going through the power switch on an ATX mother board (note: power switch, not power supply…), and it is about +5Volts.

I found a touch sensor that works off of +5Volts, hopefully I will be able to use the simple design I came up with for implementing a touch sensor switch on a motherboard.

 Motherboard info here.

 Touch Sensor info here.

Here is the simple schematic…

EDIT: It turns out that the other schmatic would have fail for sure… this one should work

I got the front and back of the gass pump now

Here is the front/back of my gas pump! I ordered two of these so that I could make my front how I want it instead of just working with an existing window opening. Now I can make my own front how I want.
