Title: Multi-plane sheet connected sensors

Abstract: A sheet material connecting sensors in multiple-axes image controllershaving at least two-axes input members and also including fingerdepressible buttons. In some embodiments at least some of the sensors arepressure-sensitive variable sensors for variable output representative ofthe level of applied pressure. In some embodiments the variable sensorsinclude resilient dome caps structured to provide passive tactile feedbackto a human hand. Other preferred embodiments additionally include anactive tactile feedback for providing vibration to be felt by a handoperating the controller.
