In the olden days of Latino royalty, the Kings and Queens lacked the entertainment technology of today. They would spend hours per day mastering the simple game of Boliche, what we now call Cup and Ball. We took it a step further.
In the 21st century, 500 years later, we decided to upgrade this unchanged traditional game. We are bringing a new satisfaction to successfully completing the game. Taking a traditional game, and adding an all around love of LED's, we can one up the Kings and Queens of old.
You will learn how to craft you own boliche, our incorporation of an LED that lights up upon successful completion of the game is an added bonus that makes the toy a BoLEDiche!
Step 1: What You'll Need
2 AAA batteries
1K Ohm Resistor
Step 2: Understand the Circuit
The current of the completed circuit runs in this order. . .
a. Pour all of ShapeLock into a container of water and heat water to about 150°F
b. Be careful, it will be hot
c. Mold the plastic into the shape of the head of the boliche
i. Examine the picture and video, (http://youtu.be/eG0yNZCJNjc) the resistor and the LED will be embedded in the plastic. The positive pin of the LED must stick out of the plastic into the hole. The braided rope should stick out of the top of the head. *Imagine you have the hands of a master sculptor and attempt to shape the head as best you can. Have fun with it.*
ii. Allow mold to cool until completely solid. About 20 minutes in the fridge should be adequate.
a. Using more ShapeLock, attempt to replicate the tip of the handle so that it fits nicely into the hole of the head. The key to completing the circuit is for the tip to fit beautifully and fully inside hole of the head. If your molds don't match, the ShapeLock is reusable so heat it up again
