Intro: Glove Light
The secret behind the magic is a magneticly triggered switch at the base of the
Thumb, which I placed inside a brass tube to protect the thin glass from breaking.
The brass works well because it doesn?t interfere with the magnetic force.
I found a small (3mm) ultrabright LED that fits neatly in the tip of the index finger.
and a small magnet in tip of second finger.
The battery pack is home made out of plastic, screws, two 3 V batteries, contacts, etc.
The light is switched on by pointing with index finger and bring second finger to the base of the thumb.
Step 1: Connections
Solder wires to reed swithch LED and battery pack. Insilate connectiond with swrink tubing. Sew each component into clothbags or tubes. Open hem of glove.
Step 2: Sew Components Into Glove. Restich Hem.
Step 3: Bring Second Finger Containg Magnet to Base of Thumb and LED Will Light.
Step 4: Demo
A small LED can produce a bright light.
