Pressure sensitive grips???

Anyone aware of a source for handlebar grips with integrated pressure sensitive button(s)

Did a quick search and didn't come up with anything (other than a patent filing).

Thinking having the horn and possible high beam (pass) buttons a squeeze away would be handy (literally & figuratively)

or ???

I think it's a great idea, but there may be one or two unintended consequences, at least if I had such things mounted on my bike. Sneeze and blow horn for example.

I do think being able to activate a forward firing mini gun with a simple squeeze would be rather interesting.

We already have a flash to pass button on the bike, and the horn is very conveniently located. I can hit both without even thinking about it. Muscle memory after a couple hundred thousand miles I guess.

Fastoman could use that for his OOGA horn in Malaysia. I heard traffic over there is like a hurricane of vehicles swarming together. Someone said you just hold your breath and enter and it's usually ok.

I'd love to see a video of Fastoman entering the swarm of traffic with his air horn and OOGA horn going off simultaneously! His You Tube site would certainly get a lot of hits $$$!

Pressure switches, maybe you could adapt them?

you could probably build something into a grip-puppy easily enough.
