soft sensors

Sensor arrays are ubiquitous. They capture images in digital cameras, record the swipes of our fingers on the screens of our phones and tablets, or map pressure distribution over an area. Soft capacitive sensor arrays have been proposed to make electronic pressure-sensing skins capable of identifying the location and intensity of touch. However, large arrays of those sensors remain challenging to produce, as they require high-resolution patterning of electrodes and routing of long and thin electrical connections.
