Pressure Sensitive Sensor

These guys made a punching bag out of homemade sensors. They took pieces of wire mesh and soldered them together with some foam in between to create pressure sensitive foam. It’s all hooked up to the Arduino in a matrix and they were nice enough to post the code, tutorials and Processing files needed to recreate this project. I don’t think I have the need, or the space for that matter, to build a pressure sensitive punching bag, but I could definitely use a concept like this on some wearable clothing hooked up to a LilyPad.
