This project will be teaching you how to make a whiteboard with interchangeable pieces that can spin or light up certain parts of the board. This adds a fun element to drawing and allows it to become more interactive because it is no longer static but has moving and changing parts.

Acrylic (that will need to be Laser Cut)
Rare Earth Magnets
Small motors (I used vibrating motors)
Double Sided Conductive Tape
Electric Tape
Coin Cell Batteries
Super Glue
Dry Erase Markers

Step 1: Laser Cut and assemble

First you will need to purchase some acrylic and create a layout file of how you would like the acrylic to be cut. I made several circles all around the surface of the acrylic so that I could have many different interchangeable pieces. I used a quarter inch thick acrylic to insure that the light would show through and used a white opaque color so that it still resembled a white board. Once the board has been cut all of the sides should be assembled to create a box for all of the pieces to fit into. Also, you can begin to add little legs to each of the circles that have been cut out to create what looks like little tables which you can later add LED's to.
