Circuit stickers are a new medium for making electronics. Continue reading
Here is a gallery of gorgeous light-up Diwali cards created by workshop participants at the Center for Education Research Training and Development in the Srishti School of Art Design and Technology.
We combined paper circuits with pop-ups and sound elements in this workshop. Check out the projects and presentations at the workshop website.
The paper here details the mechanisms and pop-up created. We held this workshop in collaboration with IUAV of Venice and the Conservatorio Cesare Pollini di Padova. Here and here are some more photo sets from the workshop.
An interactive electronic pop-up book made with paper circuits. More info here.
This tutorial shows how you can add a simple light to any object using copper tape.
Parallel Circuits: turning on multiple LEDs
After turning on a single LED, you may want to try turning on more LEDs in a single circuit.
To turn on multiple LEDs with one battery, you can use a parallel circuit. To make this, instead of marking one dot on the page, mark multiple dots where you will place the LED’s. Then mark the + and – ends of the LED’s and connect all the dots the same way as with one LED, except now you are using a parallel track of copper tape where one copper strip of the track is + and the other is -. This is called connecting LEDs in parallel.
