Cupcake Circuit

I had to re-do my assignment and the layout of my circuit switch because the design of the circuit and the switch could have been a little more aesthetically pleasing and creative.

1st link: This is the first circuit and design I first attempted to make:

This 2nd link will be the final version of my circuit switch. It will not show whats underneath but that will come in the next link.

This last link will show my design and its layout of the circuit switch. The conductive materials I used was copper tape and 2 wires, 1 jumper wire and 1 solid wire. I also taped down the wires, the ends of the copper tape, and the battery. The switch I created, just had small strips of copper tape on the front of the small switch. The ends of the wire(s) held the switch in place.
(Also, I asked my girlfriend to operate the circuit switch)

These images will be my calculations for the conductive material I decided to measure. It was cut a off, of paper clip.

Intro – Alex Evangelista

Hi my name is Alexis but I prefer to go by Alex. I currently major in Informatics and have a focus area in digital culture. This will be my last semester at ASU and I was hoping to take as much classes that interest me before graduating. I have prior experience with circuits and programming thanks to AME330 Digital Physical Systems. I am familiar with laser cutting, and 3-D modeling and printing out 3-D models.

I do not believe I have had prior experience with any tangible interaction projects but I hope this class will help me understand more about tangible interactions . I hope to develop a interactive project that will educate users about the environmental ecosystem.

This video is by Nintendo and it is about an interactive play and build experience. That combines the Nintendo switch and DIY cardboard creations.
