Obsidian Pressure Plates are simply pressure plates that are made out of obsidian. They can only be activated by players. It is a standalone mod made by Myrathi, created specifically for Feed The Beast.

Obsidian pressure plates seamlessly blend into an obsidian floor when stood upon, and are quite hard to see otherwise. They give off a redstone signal like a pressure plate when stood on, but only activate when stepped on by a player; they are not affected by other entities or items. They also take significantly longer to break than normal pressure plates.

Obsidian Pressure Plates may or may not be inspired by the items of the same name and function in the popular technology mod 'Better than Wolves' by FlowerChild. (Better than Wolves is not included in Feed The Beast).
