So this week I teamed up with Jenn Casper and Rita Chen to build something using paper computing (teardrop) from the High Low Tech Group at the media lab.
It was pretty fun, but a little harder than we thought it would be. It also took quite a bit longer than we envisioned.
- The paint needs to dry before it conducts well, or at all.
- Super glue is sticky!
- For some reason our graphite switch on a straw didn't quite work.
Here's a video of our completed piece:
