    Hey everyone!

    I'm working on a project where I need a sensor. The idea is to have some sort of sensor that can detect impact when you, for example, tap your finger on a surface. I've been looking into small piezos and film piezos but am not sure which direction to go. Small piezo sensors would work best for the bottom of a finger, but not so much the side. Film piezos are nice in that they could wrap around the bottom and side of a finger, but there might be some bend detection that may or may not interfere with the signal. It would be nice to have something that deals well with velocity but having just the impact for now would serve my intentions. Any alternative suggestions? (Thanks in advance.)
