Week 5 Homework – Lavonne Sun

I did two nodes: One is led one is for battery.

For the Led one, I always interested in taking the node into a more 3D form (jump out of plane paper/ fabric! ) In favor of wood and stick, this idea just came into my mind: A Led Fake Candle!

This idea excites me! I love the combination of this little toy:

 My “candle” ?


at the end side of my ‘candle’ leaves two string easy connect to battery;

Light it upppp!!!!

My ‘flame’ :))))))))))


For the battery node also the tool I designed as a battery connector:

It’s all started with the idea: Sometimes when we are inserting led into a project and two legs of the led is stretched into a 2D surface which it’s not convenient to test with a battery in quick prototypes —— since the negative and positive side of the battery naturally form a 3D space!

So this idea came into my mind: I want to design a tool to hold the battery, but also has different way of connecting the power into different length, dimension, sizes; It can be plane, so when you stretched out the two legs of the led you can just simply put it onto the plane touching different the conductive area of negative and positive, then you can easily test the led;

Or when your led with two legs downward standing, you can easily manipulate the ‘arms’ of the tool which also connect to the battery, to place it with the led legs, leave plenty of connection forms and ways, makes quick circuit test much more accessible!

Also it looks like a cute guy with head (where the battery is); two arms (long distance connection point); two legs (close surface connection point).  Cute

The close-up of how the battery part works:

You can easily insert the battery into the ‘head’ of the guy; So you don’t need to worry how to fix a battery, and the replacement becomes very flexible and convenient;
