Create a lamp using the set of tools (materials and processes) we have used over the course of the semester. I want to see you push yourselves both conceptually and on your use of materials. The design can be simple, but I want to see real thought behind all of the decisions you make. Constraints:…

I made 3 different sensors for this assignment. 1. Motion Detector sensor: by joining safety pins (which are conductive due to their metallic matter), the movement gradually detaches the circuit and the light dims down as the movement increases. When the movement stops, the metals are joined together again, and the LED lights back up:…
