DIY BlackLight Contacts?

I know you can use Tonic water to make Blacklight reactive ice, But can you use this same method on soft contacts? I have no idea on weather tonic water is bad for your eyes, even less whether soft contacts are saluble enough for this trick to work. I figure a mix of 2/3 contact solution, to 1/3 tonic water soaked overnight might be enough to give your contacts a soft glow under blacklight. But I just dont know!Anyone willing to try this with some "overused" contacts?Glow Ice, How-to

push button contacts fail

Hi, i disassembled my full-automated coffeemachine as the push buttons for programs failed. The buttons are a line of rubber and the contacts on the platine are toothed while each rubber contact got tiny plates that bridge the contacts on the platine. I guess that the contact plates lack of conductivity - any suggestions what i can do to improve the conductivity? I thought bout buying contact foil and glue it over the rubber contacts, but i don't know, if this is the best solution.

My eyes are dim, I cannot see...

You may not know, but I wear contacts. They're monthly disposables - I can leave them in 24/7 for most of a month, as long as I go without for a coupld of day in between. Unfortunately, I seem to have lost my spectacles. Since last I wore them, I have been to Cornwall (other side of the country) and on cub camp (in a field). I fear my spectacles are lost somewhere between. Being massively short-sighted, I am consequently having trouble seeing things. I have "Ctrl+ed", but I still have my nose just a hand-span from the screen and key-board. So, if I accidentally post gibberish tonight, and the next night or two, blame it on the mole-eyes. UPDATE: I have a headache, g'night all.

What is this component called?

I don't suppose anyone would happen to know the technical name for this type of switch? I'll be using one in an Instructable I am currently making, but am unable to find this kind of switches name (if indeed it does meet the specifications of a 'switch'). Thank you.

I want a circuit to close when I OPEN a glass jar ... Answered

I'm working on a project where I have a glass jar, and I want a circuit to close when I OPEN the glass. Need ideas on how I can solve that in clever ways...? I know how to program it in flash, but my current project is all hardware based, and I don't want to use a computer to solve it. I've tried using a photo cell, but for some reason it won't trigger on the circuit I'm circuitbending. I've used a photocell on another bend, and it worked there, but on this project I'm circuitbending one of those greeting cards where you can record your own voice, and it seems that it needs a good solid connection before it will trigger. Would greatly appreciate all tips. Addition: I need a solution that takes as little space as possible.

Making a plate which detects contact with metal

Hello, I'm trying to make a 6" x 6" plate which can detect when a needle comes into contact with it.  The plate can be made out of whatever ( preferably an easy to obtain material like a metal sheet) and have any electrical components necessary attached to it but the needle can't have any attached wires etc.  Any thoughts?

printing on contact paper

I'm interested in making vinyl wall decals myself for my apt. I saw one instructable to cut the design on contact paper and stick it on the wall. But what if I have my own design (image) on my computer and wanted to print that on the contact paper. Can I do it using my inkjet printer or do I need any other special paper? Basically I wanted to print my design on any vinyl paper and transfer that onto the wall. Thank you...

Does contact paper (used for wall art) damage a painted wall when it's removed months or years later?

We're not allowed to paint our walls so I wanted to do some wall art using contact paper/adhesive vinyl. It will be up for about 3 years and I don't want it to take the paint off when I peel off the paper/vinyl. Any info or tips on removal would be great! Thanks!!

I took apart some old headphones for the speakers unfortunately the wires pulled away from the soldering when dismantling. So i have a REd wire and a Brown wire which contacts do i solder them to?Picture 3 is a simple image of what the back of the speakers looks like, each contact is labelled with a different colour so if you know which contact goes to which use the coloured label to say whether it goes with the red or the browen wire.for example- red wire to purple contact,brown wire to red contact.thankyou to anyone that helps Mdog
