An electrical connector for connecting corresponding electrically conductive areas on two spaced-apart surfaces positioned on opposite sides of the connector comprises a resilient, electrically non-conductive sheet of elastomer having first and second parallel faces and a plurality of from 2,500 to 40,000 electrically conductive linear elements per square inch of area of the faces. The linear elements are distributed substantially evenly throughout the sheet of elastomer, are bonded to the elastomer, and rectilinearly extend between the two faces. Each linear element is electrically insulated from each other linear element within the elastomeric sheet while the plurality of linear elements constitutes less than 10% of the volume of the combination of linear elements and elastomeric sheet.
