Greetings,

I am working on a smart ring. I want to incorporate a capacitive sensor that can detect swipes and taps, like the finger sensors on OnePlus 6, where when you swipe down, it pulls down the notification centre and when you swipe up, it pulls the notification centre up. I have been looking online but i couldn't find the sensor that i could use. The available sensors are usually "tap" sensors capable of detecting only taps but no swipes. Can you suggest sensor and how i could use it, it needs to be small to fit in a ring.

Welcome to AAC!
I would expect any tap/swipe sensor, or any smart feature, to require a power supply. How will you fit a power supply inside a ring (assuming you mean a conventional finger ring)?

It will be battery powered and power circuits can be shrunken down
