bend sensor



The bend sensor turns on as you flex the long strip. To send signal to your output Bits, bend the strip down, towards the Bit's feet. But make sure not to crease it: that could damage your Bit! Try it with a bargraph to test its sensitivity.

Check out our Tips + Tricks for more ideas on using the bend sensor. Happinessguarentee d258fab674092cd0ce1248f6a918423e613f26ccccbd802ef0e9533054ca733b
