Week 7 Debrief (2/2)
I've managed to find an interesting set of wires, so I twist the garbage braided copper wire in order to get some purchase.
Attempting to salvage the potentiometer from the volume control has proven fruitless, so I remove it completely. I want volume at max for fluctuations in conductivity to ring loud and true.
With my circuits settled, I start soldering the contact points together for a more consolidated circuit.
Cutting off the 20+ excess wires is a tiresome elimination process, but I end up with two contact points that I'm satisfied with. They'll be my bent circuit that I'll employ.
(On/off switch with three noise options)
I have the electronics situated, so I move on to a housing for the board. Since this project is sculptural in nature, I want to make a sculpture along the vein of my interests for personal value.
(Simple cardboard housing)
First trying aluminium foil for touch pads, I find I can make a more compelling touch interface with copper wire.
(Complete housing before foam is added)
(Tape to protect the speaker, more copper wire for increased conductivity)
(Merging the power/option switch to the batteries with TAPE!)
Too gooey for now, have to wait for the insulation foam to cure... Grand finale picture to come.
