The Tangio force-sensing resistor is an evolution of the membrane switch based on the same design principles and made using similar manufacturing techniques.
What defines a Tangio force-sensing resistor is its unique characteristic of dynamic resistance relative to the amount of pressure applied to the device. In general, the more pressure applied to the surface of the sensor, the greater the decrease in resistance.
Force-sensing resistors are used for qualitative rather than precision measurements. They are currently found in a wide range of industry applications, including automotive sensors, computer input devices, interactive toys, medical equipment, musical instruments, and sports equipment.
