  1. this might be a really dumb question, but what purpose does this stroke sensor have?? i mean.. why???
    i don’t get it yet!! please someone enlighten me!

  2. Like I said, you could use it to control lights connected to a fuzzy rug with an embedded stroke sensor, or make a plush toy make noise/light when you stroke its hair.
