2021-05-26 (W) Wearable Macro Keyboard BackOfTheHand BotH

I began the next phase of prototype assembly. I screwed down the replacement finger rods and the latest IR aerial. I decided to add this new one to the platform instead of replacing the old one, so I will need code changes soon. During installation, I overtightened the pinkie finger rod, and it snapped, but I had a spare ready to go. When I cut the aerial wires, I made them extra long, but I should have made them even longer. A good lesson is that wire is cheap, but rework is expensive and wastes even more copper. For the GND, I used the stripboard, and for the Vcc, I tapped off the copper strip under the finger rods. I kept a list of my terminations so I could map them in software later.
