Here’s a thread with a mix of circuit explorations– some are just little ideas and some are bigger projects. #CircuitCelebration @TinkeringStudio starting with this idea! Using paper circuit materials + a reed switch& magnet to make silly interactions
Another example of a circuit that uses a reed switch& a magnet. This one also uses a tricolor LED to reveal different colors when the “magic magnet wand” passes over different switches. #CircuitCelebration
Capacitive touch circuits always feel like magic. This one uses conductive thread, bead caps, and one tiny microcontroller with an LED on it to create a circuit where you change the color by touching one or more petals on this strange squishy flower. #CircuitCelebration
The teeter totter circuit! Maybe this could connect to ramps & rollers explorations somehow? @TinkeringStudio . These tilt sensors are fun to DIY in creative ways, I’ve seen people make tilt sensors using balance boards, marbles, etc. #CircuitCelebration
Here’s a circuit idea that didn’t really go anywhere. I wondered about making a system where you could build and construct playful sculptures that have LED elements. #CircuitCelebration
#ComputationalTinkering + #CircuitCelebration These paper circuits are all controlled by two micro:bits! Shake the “remote” micro:bit to turn the lights on, press a button to turn them off
Circuits are beautiful, but sometimes “hiding the wires” creates interactions that seem magical/curious. Bonus points if you can easily reveal the wires to show how the magic works like in this project where the maker can lift up the page to show her circuit. #CircuitCelebration
All of these circuits are about light! Maybe I will dig up some non-LED examples later but for now here’s one of my all time favorite uses of a circuit. Shout out to Mary West (who isn’t on Twitter) for helping me figure this out! #CircuitCelebration
