In this instructable I am going to show you how you can make magnetic switches that can be used to activate a circuit just like a regular momentary switch.
Step 1: How it Works
Warning: Be aware that some electronics can be damaged by magnets. Keep magnets away from sensitive electronics such as cathode ray rubes (CRT's), magnetic recording devices, etc.
Step 2: Materials
Magic Wand Prop
Magnetic Reed Switch (Normally Open)
Small Strong Magnet (preferably rare earth)
Soldering Iron and Solder
