The size of the mat does not fit my needs, can I order a different size of Sensing Mat?
We can customize almost every feature of the Sensing Mats: size, number of sensors, resolutions, color, textile lamination, electronic unit, etc. Keep in mind, however, that the cost of a customization is significantly higher that the one of a Development Kit, as we need to do the set-up and tooling just for you.
