Need to chose a sensor for a presentation

Main Question or Discussion Point

As stated I need to chose a somewhat simple sensor (needs to be fully explained in 3 slides) for a short presentation. I cannot use anything we have discussed at length (accelerometer, strain gauge, thermocouple, LVDT).

Any ideas?

Thanks

Here's some simple ones:

Voltmeter
pH meter
Osmolarity meter
pressure gauge
photosensor

If you want to get sneaky, talk about a 'chip log' or a 'log line' to measure velocity- that's about as simple as it gets.
