Introduction: Easy Pencil Computer!

Picture of Easy Pencil Computer!

Make this easy hand drawn science project! Draw,attach power to the pencil lines, compute!

Step 1: Pencil and Paper

Picture of Pencil and Paper

You will need any pencil and any paper

Step 2: Terminals

Picture of Terminals

Draw 5 dots on the bottom. The last one on the right is the negative terminal. And draw 8 on the top as shown (draw the line very dark) and label the dots as shown

Step 3: Wiring

Picture of Wiring

Draw a dark line from 1-1, 2-2, 3-2&1, 4-4 ( make the lines dark)

Step 4: More Wiring

Picture of More Wiring

Connect as shown (draw dark lines)

Step 5: Final Result

Picture of Final Result

You done just attach a 9v battery by connecting the negative terminal to the negative terminal on the circuit. Attach LEDs by putting the positive lead on the big dots ( on the top) and the negative lead to the smaller dots( also on the top)

If you want to attach it to another circuit the yes you do need diodes

ALKN (author)2013-12-04

I know i need diodes but this is a very basic

ALKN (author)2013-12-04

But graphite is a resistor so 9v will be 3-5v

I can see what you are trying to do but 9 volts will blow an LED. You need at least a 1000 ohm resistor in series with a single LED or put 3 or 4 LED's in series. Good concept basically drawing a conductive circuit with a pencil.

I think that you have to add diodes (See the image below) to make it work.

What does this do?

joepetemitch (author)2013-12-01

This is very cool but what is the use can't u just connect the straight to the cell ?

This looks deserving to be featured! Do you mind showing a video? That would show how cool it is.
