Step 6: The Future
I have described the manual construction of two, sucessive design protype tilt sensors. I have in mind to employ its type in a larger future project. The tilt-sensing circuit will be a separate plug-in module for that project. I include here an initial circuit board design toward that goal, probably not my final one. Elsewhere on this website are instructions for how to make circuit boards at home using laser printer on acetate film and a clothes iron. I mean to try that at some point. If you get there ahead of me, add a comment to say how it went.
I hope this instruction has proven entertaining for you, perhaps even useful. It is the least I could do in return for the inspiration I have enjoyed from others I have read on this site. Thank you.
