Some sensors and devices you might like to try. Most of these devices can be found from the electronics suppliers listed below.
switches: pushbutton, momentary, on-off, snap action, lever, video game, joysticks, reed (magnetic), Hall effect (magnetic), carpet, floor, window, door
potentiometers: standard, multiturn, linear (slider), joystick
variable resistors: flex/bend, force sensing (FSR), photocell, thermistor (temperature)
other sensors: wind/air pressure, accelerometer, infrared (proximity), ultrasonic (proximity)
lights and control: relays, LEDs, electroluminescent wire, low-voltage DC bulbs (with transistor drivers), AC switching (with relays)
robotics: DC motors, stepper motors, solenoids
Electronics (new)
http://digikey.com one of the most extensive selections of electronics
http://jameco.com less overwhelming than dickey.com and often has most of what you might need, good for bend sensors and motors
http://mouser.com extensive selection, some hard-to-find items, good source for sliders (linear pots)
Electronics (surplus)
http://allelectronics.com http://goldmine-elec.com Great sources for inexpensive motors, solenoids, switches, relays, etc.
Electronics search engines
http://findchips.com searches about 20 electronics companies at once for what you want
http://globalspec.com “The Engineering Search Engine”
Force Sensing Resistors (FSRs)
http://interlinkelec.com They sell a kit with a lot of FSRs. They will also sell them individually (with a $60 minimum order), but you have to call or email them, as this is not listed on the site.
Capacitive
http://qprox.com Similar to Theremin-type sensing, they offer both on-off and continuous sensing.
Video Game Parts
http://happcontrols.com the source for all things related to video games (buttons, joysticks, etc.)
