 +This is an attempt to collect information,​ documentation and code samples for interesting electronic components and various sensors.
 +
 +Sensors:
 +  * **Distance/​Proximity**
 +    * Sharp IR range finders, [[http://​www.acroname.com/​robotics/​info/​articles/​sharp/​sharp.html#​e8|info + comparison]]
 +  * **Temperature**
 +    * Thermistor
 +    * Digital Thermometer
 +  * **Force**
 +    * Force Sensitive Resistor (FSR), [[http://​www.sparkfun.com/​products/​9375|sparkfun]],​ resistance changes depending on force applied on the pad.
 +    * Flex sensor, [[http://​www.sparkfun.com/​products/​8606|sparkfun]],​ As the sensor is flexed, the resistance across the sensor increases.
 +    * Vibration/​piezo
 +  * **Accelerometers**
 +    * 3 axis analog,
 +  * **Light**
 +    * Photocell, CDS, photodetector,​ [[http://​www.sparkfun.com/​products/​9088|Sparkfun]],​ resistance changes depending on light intensity.
 +  * **Magnetic**
 +    * Compass
 +    * Hall Effect Sensor
 +    * Reed Switches
