Step 1: Shopping List: Rugged, Clean Handgemacht Touch Sensors
A shopping list for a nice, clean way to make touch sensors.
What you need:
Wires - ours were slightly longer than 1m (to reach the floor, and to be inserted into the bag).
Cardstock (150lb, I think...).
Metallic duct tape.
Foam wrap (2-3mm thick, usually used for shipping electronics).
Sponge - Art / Craft material (1.5mm thick - found in arts and crafts stores)
Book binding tape (25-30mm wide - a special weaved material, because it's strong and clean)
+ all the general tidbits for hacking: microcontrollers (for testing), solder + iron, cutters, blades, etc...
