The end goal is to create a wireless controller using shoes as a switch.
In this test copper conductive tape is used to light up an LED – video below
For the wireless controller part I decided to hack a mouse instead of a keyboard for the smaller form factor. Opening up the case, you can access all the click functions underneath the PCB by soldering directly on to the relevant terminals. Video below –
When I finger cross, the lucky cloud will be lighted up.
Unfortunately the LED is not enough… I have to take the cloud away to show I indeed light up the LED in the video…
This is MIDIBear, which is a quick prototype for infants to play music/sound. When they roll their heads on this MIDI, they can play with the sound from GarageBand.

I was aiming to create a circuit that’s pull, using the magnets to pull the battery to the magnet to complete the circuit, but in the end, I think I ended up doing hit. It was fun anyway.
Using construction paper, I folded an origami frog and added pieces of wire mesh onto it so that it would type a letter each time you made the frog jump. (Though my frog didn’t feel like jumping too much). I used this origami controller to control a game of Frogger. (Run in Processing with code by R.M. Watkins, found on openProcessing)
