2021-04-20 (Tu) Wearable Macro Keyboard BackOfTheHand BotH Pressure Sensors 2

I did a quick search for "Velostat pressure sensor" and followed a link to an Instructable where a woman used copper tape to interface with her plastic sheets. I put a piece of copper tape under the finger rods and wedged the tip of a Velostat strip under it, then measured from it to the copper. The results were not great, so I tried three layers, and it was worse. I reviewed the instructions, added a copper strip on the finger rod and a small square of Velostat, which worked splendidly. Tensioning the finger rod screw was important, but when it was just right, I got a resistance swing from 2KΩ to 5KΩ.
