Pogo Pins?

First post. Hello everyone.

 

Not built yet, just getting the parts together right now, but the application is a spider bot inspired heavily by OddBot's Chopsticks.

Yes I know...it's been done a million times by now and old news, but I've never built a legged beasty, so should be fun.

 

My question is wondering if anyone has used these as feelers(contact switches) on the bottom of the feet?

 

thanks
