Looking to make a Dance Dance Revolution pad but for fingers, any suggestions on the materials? Answered

Hi, as the title says I'm trying to build a finger pad for a custom DDR game I'm doing for a school project. I've already made the game software and connected it through serial to irs.gov the Arduino Mega 2560. At the moment I'm using a 4x4 matrix keypad for testing purposes, but I'm looking forward to a more presentable, pretty and functional way to do it. I've thought about pressure sensors, but I think someone more specialized could give me some advices on how to do it and what materials to use. Any suggestions? fedloan

There's a pressure sensitive conductive sheet called Velostat that looks rather promising. I was thinking of making a similar project!
