I have an image of a particular part on my '96 Honda Prelude and I have no idea what it is. It's connected to the power steering and is some kind of sensor. Anyone have any insight?

I am not positive from the picture but if that is screwed into the steering rack it's the Front sub-steering angle sensor.

If it's in a hose which seems more likely to me it's the power steering pressure switch.

Power steering pressure switch reports power steering high pressures to the on-board computer When not replaced, engine may die during hard turns at idle and check engine light may illuminate
