This is a resistive sensor whose conductivity increases when bent. Its initial resistance is 200kΩ and can be reduced to about 50kΩ depending on the angle and degree of flex, allowing it to be used in applications such as "feelers" on mobile robots, VR gloves, physics experiments, etc.
The length of the flexible area is about 4.5 inches. There are two wires that emerge from the sensor, about two inches long.
