Resistance is futile, at least in trying to figure out the value of your resistor if you do not have the color code memorized.
I had one of these Adafruit Circuit Playground electronic component plushies
laying around just waiting to be hacked. So, thinking along the lines of the Resistor Value Helper Tie
, having a resistor value decoder laying around would be pretty handy. Also fun to use and get kids interested in electronics.
This is a simple task to create a set of stacked freely rotatable rings like a cryptex, affix the color coded bands, and mount them on the plushie.
Relax. meditate, do not fear divining the value of any unknown resistor, oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohm...
