This EeonTex fabric is a conductive, nonwoven microfiber with piezo-resistive functionality for use in dynamic sensors to map and measure pressure, bend, angle stretch and torsion. Each sheet of the EeonTex Pressure Sensing Fabric is pre-cut into 12 inch by 13 inch sheets about 0.8mm thick. This fabric is unique and perfect for anyone interested in wearables and e-textiles.
EeonTex Pressure Sensing Fabric is highly conductive with a surface resistivity of 2K Ohm/sq. Additionally, it features a dynamic range of 5g to 100kg, as well as a data acquisition rate of 500 cycles per second.
Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.
Skill Level: Competent - You might need to break out the power tools. Nothing beyond a power drill or rotary tool should be required, but you might have a hard time with just a screwdriver and hammer. Cutting holes into plastic or metal might be required.

Worked as described, just remember the resistant is determined by the length.
maybe too short range of responsivity, as for my needs.
I honestly haven't had a chance to try this fabric out yet, but given how difficult it was to get a hold of (only sold wholesale) up until now, I am ecstatic that it is being sold on sparkfun.com, and thank you thank you thank you for retailing it.
I used this pressure sensitive fabric between to conductive fabric layers as a punch sensor. It easy to cut and handle and works great. I tried to sew this with a sewing machine, but it put too much pressure on the fabric. Had to sew very lightly just on each corner by hand.
