BeBop has spent the past 5 years building on the foundational knowledge developed at KMI to hone our ability to sense pressure and bend on our proprietary piezoresistive (pressure-sensitive) fabric. Presented here is a list of key examples built using our Smart Fabric.


The Next Generation Human Interface


Small Format Pressure Map (16S)

Gesture Recognition Capabilities
