Wondering how to increase resistance across the sensor? Here’s a hint, resistance depends on flex! The flex sensor provided here is a 4.5” in length, and as the sensor gets flexed, resistance gets increased across the sensor. (Changes when the metal pads are on the outside of the bend).
Fun fact is that these sensors were actually used in the ORIGINAL Nintendo Power Glove, which is quite interesting. Connector is 0.1" spaced and bread board friendly.
