DIY SnapIno ( Arduino Meets Snap Circuits ) + Scratch

Introduction: DIY SnapIno ( Arduino Meets Snap Circuits ) + Scratch

About: arduino fan

I have purchased Snap Circuits 4 years ago to my son, while I was playing with Arduino. Now we are starting to work with Scratch for Arduino and Arduino, but I found the SnapIno a great idea ... since it is far away to his birthday or Xmas, I decided to make my own SnapIno and some more snap circuits parts.

Step 1: Building the Parts

I am sure this would be an option , but I have still not made my mind about purchasing a 3D printer, so I decided to use fabric to costume make my parts.

Using the original Snap with 3 buttons, conductive tread and snap buttons.

Pictures are self explanatory, right ?

Step 2: Testing

Step 3: Result

With Scratch for Arduino e made the LED blink , one after the other, similar to the project we did here

    Hi rao003,

    That is a neat DIY trick. Just discovered this & this was just what I was looking for. Needed one input - what size of snap buttons did you use? The snap buttons typically available around here are of a smaller size. So do please share the specified size - or even better - a link to the specific item (Amazon et al). That would really help me to emulate your DIY project. Thanks.

    Also, I am unable to access the video above. Could you help with that?
