Hello makers, readers and curious!
I´m here today to bring you a sort of toy I have made for the Arduino Day (March 28th, 2015). It is a simple tilt-based LED light (images below), and despite the fact that it features no Arduino (!?), it made me proud of my maker capabilities!.
The working principle is simple: depending on the position of the tilt ball switch, the LED lights or not; you can check the schematic below. I have used the following materials:
- 2x 1.5V coin cell batteries
- 1x 100R/ 0,125W resistor
- 1x Tilt ball switch
- 1x 5mm red LED
- Glue, to put the batteries together :)
The original idea came from my mom, which is a special children's teacher, and it intends to stimulate and entertain them, and help them learn quickly.
I have not tested the toy with children so far, but will be glad to share the results with you when I do. See you guys next time!.
