Once again Donald Bell has been kind enough to mention a project of mine in his weekly Maker Update.
Day 37: Flick Face. Perf board, LEDs, coin cell battery, battery holder, resistors, hookup wire, and springs. I made some whisker switches using the springs from ball point pens I got at the bank. The circuit kind of looks like a face and you get the best results when you flick the board.
Made some frames for a project Dan Shiffman is working on. Some laser cut acrylic, standoffs, a monitor, a Raspberry Pi, and camera. Yes, I know the screen is upside down, we’ll flip it in the software.
I taught a utility belt making workshop with Kate Hartman the other day. A lot of fun.
First step is actually make a belt: strap, buckle, clip, tri-glide, and do a little sewing. Next, we’ll add electronics and gadgets.
The latest assignment for my class was to make simple pull toys. I think the students did a fantastic job.
