2021-04-07 (W) Wearable Macro Keyboard BackOfTheHand BotH Second Concept

I thought of some holes in my first design. To make contact with the finger rods, I would have had to extend my fingers impossibly, or at least uncomfortably far back. The first version didn't have a mechanism to read the finger touches, like switches, but I considered that I could use a single pressure sensor to know the difference between a light touch and a hard press. An analog sensor will be simpler to implement and inexpensive since I have a stock of Velostat.

The pressure sensor will sit between the moving finger rods and the chassis to keep constant pressure, but that pressure will be alleviated when touched. The rods curl around the platform to meet the fingers, but I haven't made any attempt to ensure they're the right size and shape.
