Update 3/28

Issues- Arduino not being able to program when running off of power source---
- fixed by running it off of the power from the computer

- Sensing when not being touched (common values include: 125, 0, 90, 30)
- messed with threshold values didn't seem to effect anything
- added in some preventative measures in code
- didn't really help
- suspect that it is the sensing pad that is misreading


what needs to be done

think about how to make a more reliable sensing pad
check to see if new code works with motor driving board---
