Question: How do you build tiles with piezoelectric materials?

Answer: The construction of piezoelectric tiles usually uses another material for the actual surface with piezoelectric materials underneath that are flexed by the pressure placed on the surface. It’s actually quite easy to build these kinds of tiles as all you need to do is find a slightly flexible surface and mount the piezoelectric material underneath so it will be flexed with pressure. Then you hook the piezoelectric material up to a battery or whatever you want to be powered and you’re done. This is as simply as soldering or otherwise attaching the positive and negative leads to the piezoelectric material. The video below illustrates this perfectly.
