Force Sensing Resistor

A force sensitive resistor, sometimes called a force sensing resistor or abbreviated to FSR, is a staple element in any computer mediated haptics system. They are a specialised type of resistor whose resistance changes when a force or pressure is applied.

The resistance is inversely proportional to the force applied, as the resistance decreases as force increases.

Novint Falcon is a commercial grade haptics unit. Essentially, it is a 3D joystick that responds with the full range of force: Weight, shape, texture, dimension, dynamics and force effects.

Ray Kurzweil is a formidable force in VR and AI. Hell, he is a formidable force anywhere he has turned his attention. He has a knack for predicting the future, and so far so far not a single one of his predictions has ever been wrong. This book is his theory on Accelerating Intelligence made flesh and a warning for the monumental acceleration of technological change in the years to come.
