We've been tinkering with circuit ideas at the studio for the past week and made our first light up car using coin battery and LED. All the tutorials on the web uses copper tape and metal clip for paper circuits but I wanted something a bit more streamlined and flexible. I had some copper wire from making the homopolar motor so decided to use it for this project. The wires worked perfectly and I created a battery pack in the back so I can turn on and off the light by inserting / removing the battery.
While observing, my five year old wanted to light up her car, too, so she created her version of the circuit using LittleBits without any help. When I placed them together, thought her little box car turned out cuter than mine. What do you think?
