 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi, I am completely new to arduino and everything about it and i am very frustrated at this point.

I ordered a Flexiforce Pressure Sensor - 100lbs. x1, and hope to activate different sounds via different pressures on the sensors. I found this video which looks like what I would like to get done, but no instructions. Any help is very much apprechiated.





Thanks,
Aileen

As first try read the sensor data. Use analog pins on your Arduino.

When you start your Arduino IDE, there's lots of examples, also AnalogInput can be found.

Now, show some spirit here, and try one!
