Make: DIY Projects and Ideas for Makers

Instead of using wires to connect a battery to LEDs, paper circuits use conductive metal tape. Copper tape can be found online at places like Amazon, Sparkfun, and as part of the Circuit Stickers kit at Maker Shed. It can also be found at hardware stores as “slug tape“. Or try cutting long, narrow strips of aluminum foil tape, used for repairing HVAC ducts (but not duct tape!) Popularized by technology-oriented artists like Jie Qi and Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories, refined in places like the Tinkering Studio and nexmap, and now a wonderful product by chibitronics called Circuit Stickers, this lovely synthesis of art and technology is a great way to introduce artists to electronics, and engineers to art. This Make: Project is just the beginning of what’s possible. When your LED stops lighting up, replace the battery.

Origami Paper Circuits

They’re fun, they’re easy to teach, and there are so many different ways you can create paper circuits. In this tutorial, we will show you how to incorporate paper circuits into Origami. Required Materials For this tutorial, we will be using origami paper. For the electronic parts, I have chosen to use copper tape and LED stickers, but you could easily use regular LEDs, Lilypad LEDs, or any number of other LEDs and some adhesive and resistors. Here is a list of exactly what I used for my origami flowers: Note that origami paper (or some other kind of paper) is also needed. Here are the tools I used: (optional) Soldering iron(optional) SolderKrazy glue (may be needed depending on the flower you chose)Invisible tape (may be needed depending on the flower you chose, or if you don’t want to solder) Suggested Reading Some other tutorials that may come in handy are: Choosing a Flower There are lots of origami flowers from which to choose.

Blink blink Creative Circuit Kits provide all the necessary tools to engineer arts, crafts, and fashion projects with technology, specifically focusing on girls & their beautifully inspired and uninhibited creativity. Blink blink circuit kits teach the fundamentals of making projects with creative circuits so girls can enhance their DIY, fashion, arts, and crafts projects with light! With our comprehensive blink blink Creative Circuit Booklet and website tutorials (videos and step-by-step instructions), we fully support girls through the creative circuit exploration process.

The blink blink Possibilities Kit is our most robust creative circuit kit. Don’t know what these materials are? 1. 2. Paper Circuits Interactive Mural (Middle School) - Mr. Moss - Fab Lab. Interactive Light Painting- Pu Gong Ying Tu ‎(Dandelion Painting)‎-SD.mp4 Mr.

Paper Circuits Interactive Mural (Middle School) - Mr. Moss - Fab Lab

Moss studying how Pu Gong Ying did her interactive paper circuits at MIT Media Lab.....we do research at NBPS!!! This project incorporate Fab Lab Equipment (Digital Fabrication Tools) into creative, Do-It-Yourself (DIY) experiences where young learners gather to create, invent, and learn. Their products are Large, Public, Interactive 2D Displays of Art, Engineering, Imagination, and Group Work – in short, Fab Lab Art. These are giant interactive bulletin board displays in public spaces. This project uses paper circuits. You can quickly create circuits on paper using copper tape, clear tape, coin-cell batteries and LEDs. Our large bulletin board can become interactive if we use annotations to direct a viewer to press or slide your finger across certain spaces on the display.
