  • I, too, got just such an email, and am dismayed that they are already out of stock just 2 hours after receiving the mail. It would be nice if there could be a quantity cap for these, so they don’t get snapped up in huge numbers by people using them for commercial products or production. Leave some hanging around for those of us doing small quantity prototyping and experimentation, eh?

  • I agree that the surface of the sensor feels good for finger use. However, I have found that the amount of pressure needed to make a connection between the resistive layer and the conductor is well more than I had hoped; I have to press far too hard for fast play on the sensor. So, if you are looking for low physical actuation force (for play on the sensor with a light touch), you might want to try the normal Softpot line. Though I haven’t tested them, the actuation force listed in the spec sheet is lower.

No public wish lists :(
