A Flex and Force sensor. This is a flexible sensor which changes its output when it is bent or when force is applied on it.
This sensor has two output wires. The resistance between these two wires varies when the sensor is bent or when subjected to a force. Hence, this sensor can be used as a flex or force sensor.
The active sensing area of this sensor is 5 cm(~2").
This sensor is great for making whiskers for obstacle avoiding robots, gloves that sense finger positions, door position sensors, etc
