WEEK 2: Switch with Paper Craft

Sep 26, 2013 by Carl Jadaa // Leave a Comment

For this assignment, I did a house built with paper, and integrated a circuit inside of it using copper tape and conductive thread. I made the door to the house act as a switch, in a way that when it rotates, the LED lights turn on inside the house.

Week 4 – Potentiometer Sensor

Sep 24, 2013 by Billy Ryu // Leave a Comment Here’s the sensor I tried. I made a potentiometer sensor with conductive ink and copper tape. The sensor pretty worked when I tried it.

Pressure sensors Sponge Sensor Squeezing the sensor allows the two sides of tape to connect and control the LED. Hideous Pom Pom Squeezing this “Pom-Pom” (I use this term lightly), controls the LED by increasing the conductivity as you squeeze more of the tape is connected. Pots Before I started on my Pot Sensors I…

Week 3 – Folding & Switch

Sep 24, 2013 by Billy Ryu // Leave a Comment

For week 3 assignment, I quickly made a simple switch with folding paper. I used one of origami methods called Tetratetraflexagon. This is one way of flexagon origami which has four faces and four sides. I’ve tried this when I took a book arts class at my undergraduate school. There are many different types of…

Week 4 Assignment

1) Create two variations of two sensors from the four we discussed (Pressure, Potentiometer, Bend/Flex, Stretch). You should have a total of 4 sensors. Think about surface area, distance, and contact as you construct them. Also: You do not have to embed the battery. Instead you may connect them with alligator clips. ;) 2) Document…

Went for the hard paper folds, got the pre-folding decently down, but then didn’t quite get it to magically close up.     Round 2: Thought about easier folding, thought about gum chains and the interlocking: The Story: The paper chain closes to create a lock for holding secrets.  The light is the locking power….

Week 2 Assignment

Assignment: 1) Make a switch using one of the techniques we just learned. Choose a mechanic to start. 2) Create a retroactive design brief that explains: A) Why was it created? What is it used for?(Doesn’t have to exist in reality) B) What it does do? (Imagine the LED represents something else) C) Who it…
