I connected the Digispark clone and sensor board with four wires. The keyboard code from Digistump worked, but I couldn't get the virtual serial port to work. The problems started when I tried to run the example code for the capacitive sensor board. For some reason, it wouldn't compile for the microcontroller, and I didn't want to spend an excessive amount of time writing a library or even project-specific code.

Instead of fussing over why I couldn't use my first choice, I decided to use the Arduino Micro. The model I bought came with header pins installed, which made it unnecessarily tall, so I removed all of them with a soldering iron. Next, I connected it to the sensor board, but I left a gap so my enclosure can support it.
