We made a button in class today using wires, craft foam, tin foil and packing tape! This is pretty neat, I am looking forward to experimenting with other sensors and things I can jury-rig.
This one was a switch! Turns out the paper clips we used were coated, hence the needle as the switch instead. I am so psyched to work with soft circuits! Sewing is so fun! (Or sew fun, haha.)
This was what we did in class this week – soft circuits! I love sewing and have been having a lot of fun with the Arduino so far, so this is right up my alley!
Exercise 5 with 2 buttons as it was written! We got access to the necessary number of buttons to complete this in class today.
So, turns out these exercises need an LCD screen and specific buttons for a “Simon Says” game, neither of which came in the kits. So I guess these will wait until I know if these are necessary to complete and if so, when I am able to get the materials.
So I guess I’m done these exercises! Yay!
