I then took a workshop from Jiri (with Mohit Bhoite and Kelly Heaton) at Hackaday’s Remoticon. It was great! Here’s what we made:
Brass is a great medium as it’s fairly inexpensive (you can make this for about 5bux). The firefly runs off a 3V coin cell battery. There’s no wiring as the sculpture itself is the circuit. So cool!
If you’d like to make this, please do. All the files and how-tos are over here on the workshop page. Check it out.
Also check out the presenter websites for more electronic sculpture inspiration!
If you’re a member, I’m doing a brass wire order. So if you’d like to buy some brass rods to make your own light-up sculpture see the details in slack on the #mail-order channel. The rest of what you need is at VHS. We have loads of leds and soldering supplies.
Shout out to Hackaday for organizing such a great conference. This session was super fun.
