Tactiontape - Touch Sensitive Tape for Rapid Prototyping Answered

Hi everyone,

Tactiontape is a one-dimensional touch sensor that curves.

It's designed to make building interactive physical prototypes easier, even ones with non-planar or complex surface geometry.

It functions as a flexible potentiometer and uses a strip of graphite to express a linearly resistive electrical signal, one that corresponds to how far along the tape you've touched.

Each sensor is hand-made using materials from an art supply store.

Here's a demo:
