Make Velostat Step Sensors

Cut a heel-shaped piece of velostat and tape a loop of conductive thread to it, with a long (at least 18 inches) tail sticking out to one side.

Cut another piece for the other shoe and repeat.
Flip the pieces of velostat over and tape another loop of conductive thread . The tails should be on the same side, but at least two inches apart.
