Forget Me Not!

by MusicGirlLC

Published on March 7, 2017

Let's face it- we've all had those moments where we've forgotten something really important. Even though we write ourselves notes, set reminders on our phones, and ask other people to remind us, we can never really trust that will work. My newest LittleBits inventions for the "Illuminating Inventions" challenge will fix all of that. Put the Forget Me Not right next to your door. When you step on the pressure sensor, it will trigger the 09 Bargraph Bit (lights), the 06 Buzzer (sound), and the 011 Servo, which will wave its arm with a sign saying "Don't Forget Your ______whatever you usually forget______". Continue to the steps to build the Forget Me Not!

How To Make It

STEP 1 :

E435a32a 6243 46b0 aaab a2da79305fd1

Start with your Power Bit.

STEP 2 :

E25f5123 759b 4a14 8bee b9a4aaac6bc0

Now attach the i11 Pressure Sensor.

STEP 3 :

7abee280 fb1f 4a36 87f2 adbbbdfa1697

Next, attach the 09 Bargraph.

STEP 4 :

9e264071 def9 4da1 83e6 d6f45503d62e

After that, attach the 06 Buzzer.

STEP 5 :

4c7a636b 96d8 4597 9479 48472aca76f5

Finally, attach the Servo. Make sure that you screw the arm onto the Servo- this will be crucial.

STEP 6 :

B68fe1d9 6673 4b95 8064 90173495cd23

Set aside your circuit. Now, take a piece of sturdy paper about the side of an index card.

STEP 7 :

2381ecde 9864 4b0e b784 33f2d105f004

Write what you don't want to forget on your card. I used homework as an example.

STEP 8 :

E60b9f8f 1f24 4310 abee 7e450426a7e3

Take your circuit back out. On te arm of the Servo, put something that sticks on both sides (i.e. double sided tape, glue dots, or this sticky blue putty that I used). This will be where the index card goes.

STEP 9 :

E7f5c985 d210 48c0 97ff feea00e743ae

Attach your card.

STEP 10 :

B46a9439 cb84 47da 8c2e d86282f2fbc2

Put your circuit by your door and attach the Servo to a nearby wall.

STEP 11 :

65598e1c b4dd 4c80 88ba f98c19a41551

Power on your circuit and test it out! Step on the Pressure Sensor and see what happens!
