I salvage electronics for parts and projects and I like clear proto boxes to put my projects into, that way I can show off my work. I can never find proto boxes in the store when I want one, let alone clear proto boxes that let me see the internal components until one day I spotted some candy in the store.
I can just imagine how conductive paint would improve a project like this, my latest creation is a signal generator, and instead of running wires I could paint the wires on the plastic.
This project is a green project because of the salvaged circuits and the reuse of candy boxes.
Step 1: The Candy Boxes
These candy boxes from Ferrero Rocher are designed to show off the candy and they make great proto boxes coming in a variety of sizes just the right dimensions for small circuits and other components. The best part they cost less than a proto box and you get a treat.
My wife thinks I am a romantic giving her chocolates all the time, now she knows I want the boxes but she still likes getting the Bon Bon’s. I open one of these boxes of Bon Bon’s and before I can say Bon Bon’s their gone between my wife and sons, I am lucky to get one.
