This sensor has been replaced by the BendMini v1.1.
Bend your fingers and control your lights. Goes from 0° to 180°
(larger flex angle possible). Shorther version available as
longer version as
See this videoclip
for a demo of the BendShort !
- Combine with the TouchGlove and
create your own custom dataglove for capturing finger bending, capture hand movements with a
- Go whole-body with a bodysuit, capture all your joints' movements and express with all your extremities. A couple of
will capture muscle tension. Use a
GForce2D&Tilt2D on your feet and hands
to capture kicks and punches. A Hot will keep
you in check of your body temp.
- Since it's such a thin and flexible sensor, it's usable for measuring airflow.
- Wireless Wi-miniDig
recommended in all cases to operate without tether.
- For bookworms: has also been used to detect turning of pages.

||The sensor output is determined by both the angle between the ends of the
sensor as well as the flex radius; bending the sensor sharply will result in a higher value
than bending the sensor smoothly, when keeping the ends in the same position. Shorther version
available as BendMicro,
longer version as BendShort.|
