Introduction: Pocket-sized Wire Loop Game
I made this miniaturized game, all the elements can be removed and placed inside the box,
and you can reshape the wire infinitely so the game can be hard or easy.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Material :
All the parts are on the picture.
Step 2: Circuit :
Follow this very simple schematic.
When the circle touch the wire, the circuit is closed and the current flows. That way the led turns on and the buzzer ring.
Step 3: Connectors :
Remove the metallic part from an IC socket and place a ring of heat-shrink tube around it you'll need three of them.
Step 4: Drilling :
Drill these holes in the box.
3 for the connectors (2mm),
1 for the led (5mm),
1 for the switch.
Step 5: Connectors (2) :
Place the 3 connectors in the 2mm holes they are insulated from the box thanks to the heat-shrink tube.
Step 6: Enclose the Circuit :
Place the circuit in the box and be sure that there is no short circuit !
Step 7: Closure System :
Cut 4 screws stick them on the lid and place magnets on the corners of the box.
I made like that because I wanted the box to be easily openable and when it's closed, there is the illusion that the lid is screwed.
Step 8: Game :
Bend a wire to make the game and make the circle.
At the extremity of the handle I placed a little plug in order to plug a jumper wire.
Step 9: End !
The project is now finish! All can fit in the box so it's transportable!!!
