3D assignment

Choose a 3d shape from the two paper form books in the locker or from the polyhydran website to construct a small interface that is 3D ( not flat). Your interface should have working circuit that is integrated into the 3d shape. Try it: use your Arduino to blink or fade an LED or LEDs.

bristol paper, 2 LEDs, conductive material, conductive thread, double sided and single sided tape, 3v battery

inspiration:

process & outcome



Construct a circuit that has at least one paper pressure sensors, one switch and two LEDs.

materials:
card stock paper, vellum, hot glue gun, magnet, 3V battery, conductive thread, conductive ink, 2 RGB LEDs, single sided and double sided tape

The lever I chose to use:

Next I constructed the lever:

Here I incorporated a switch:

[I’m going to decorate the yellow paper so the conductive material doesn’t look so out of place – I will post an updated image soon.]
