These helpful components measures & outputs electrical signals depending on it's application. Each type of sensors uses different technology to provide sensing capability for applications like pressure, acceleration, light, force, proximity, sound and many more.

Show:
FLORA Accelerometer/Compass Sensor - LSM303 - v1.0

Add motion and direction sensing to your wearable FLORA project with this high precision 3-axis Accelerometer+Compass sensor. Inside are two sensors, one is a classic 3-axis accelerometer, which can tell you which direction is down towards the Earth (by measuring gravity) or how fast the board is accelerating in 3D space.

Pressure-Sensitive Conductive Sheet (Velostat/Linqstat)

It's pressure-sensitive: squeezing it will reduce the resistance, so it's handy for making flexible sensors.

$5.95

Round Force-Sensitive Resistor (FSR) - Interlink 402

FSRs are sensors that allow you to detect physical pressure, squeezing and weight.

$11.95

Long Flex/Bend sensor

This sensor can detect bending in one direction. They were popularized by being used in the Nintendo PowerGlove as a gaming interface.

$19.95

Tilt ball switch

The "poor man's" accelerometer! Tilt sensors are switches that can detect basic motion/orientation.

$3.95

Linear SoftPot (Ribbon Sensor) - 100mm

Manufactured by Spectra Symbol, these are nice little ribbon controllers (also known as 'soft potentiometers') with an adhesive backing.

$19.95

Short Flex/Bend Sensor

This sensor can detect bending in one direction. They were popularized by being used in the Nintendo PowerGlove as a gaming interface.

$12.95

Standalone Toggle Capacitive Touch Sensor Breakout - AT42QT1012

This breakout board is the simplest way to create a project with a single "toggle" capacitive touch sensor.

$9.95

Extra-long force-sensitive resistor (FSR) - Interlink 408

FSRs are sensors that allow you to detect physical pressure, squeezing and weight.
