2021-05-17 (M) Wearable Macro Keyboard BackOfTheHand BotH IRScan()

I had a couple of code paths for the two microcontrollers. One had an ESP32 and a display, while the other was an Arduino Micro clone. I started mixing the two, but the code from the clone wouldn't compile for the wireless chip. Every time I've used an ESP32-core board, it has relied on its native USB for programming, allowing it to emulate HIDs like keyboards, mice, gamepads, and MIDI devices. Unfortunately, this one used a translator chip, like much older Arduinos, but I will keep using it and hope to do those things over Bluetooth. When I removed the keyboard and mouse emulation code, it compiled.

I revised the code that activated the IR LEDs and monitored the IR receiver. Since I moved controllers, I updated the IO pin locations and had to add some. Results were not conclusive because I didn't get any response at first. Things picked up when I pointed the IR aerial at a shiny surface, but I received false positives shortly after that.
