While this Instructable documents the process of building a fully functioning 28 x 28 pressure sensitive matrix, there is much room for improvement, and so in each step we discuss issues with the current solution and also include suggests for improvements. At this stage in the project we are really looking fwd to receiving your feedback and suggestions! Ian is also looking to hire individuals interested in (re-)building the skin based on this Instructable (changes, alterations, improvements encouraged!), so if you are interested in taking on this challenge, please contact us through Instructables. Please note that the skills required to replicate the current version of rSkin include: hand and machine sewing, soldering and a basic understanding of the electrical properties of materials.
The next step this Instructable explains in more detail the basic principal of how rSkin works without going into the full amount of detail required to build it yourself. Before attempting to remake this Instructable, i would recommend reading through all the steps to get a good impression of how it all comes together. Building rSkin is not necessarily a linear process where everything needs to happen in a particular order, though in this Instructable i make an attempt at doing just that.
