Have you ever not had enough batteries for an object? Or have you ever lost the adapter for an object, and wanted to use it again? Or just want to make some cool sparks in your room?
Step 1: Finding the right stuff.
So you're cleaning your room one day, and you find your old Gameboy, circa 1989. Some more searching yields a few cartridges, until you finally find one that's worth playing (I have Zelda as my example in this one). You flick the switch antd wait for the red battery light to shine.. and nothing. You flick it again. Still nothing. Pulling the cartridge out, you blow in there, hoping to clear out some of the dust, perhaps that was the problem. Finally, after opening the battery compartment door, you realize that either the batteries in there are dead, or they're missing. Still burning with the urge to play Link's Awakening, you set out on a quest to make the Gameboy work. With no batteries in sight, you must turn to alternative methods.
What you need:
- Gameboy (or any device that runs off batteries and has positive and negative terminals)
- Alligator clips (not necessary, any sort of wire will work just as well)
- AC adapter (I used a variable one, you can really use any adapter as long as the voltages match)
- Standard safety equipment (gloves if you're scared of being shocked, water as the sparks could cause a fire)
