I created this modified Swimming Shark to introduce students to the LittleBits electronics they will be using in their upcoming kinetic sculpture assignment. When using LittleBits in conjunction with the 3D printer the possibilities are really exciting. All parts except the paper shark were fabricated using the 3D printer and I incorporated my DC motor mount into the design. files and links can be found at Thingiverse ... http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:198170
Make your very own International Space Station and play music on it from afar.This project uses the same circuits as the Data Communication project, but here we are giving them some galactic context.How does it work?Your digitized music is converted into a series of light wave pulses. The pulses are decoded by the light sensor and converted into sound waves by the speaker.NASA uses electromagnetic waves to communicate with satellites orbiting Earth.Note: the build instructions correspond with the cardboard model.
