November 2018


Below are various mini-projects used for getting familiar and trained on the available makerspace tools. Projects include: The LED Candle, Parametric Candle, Laser Cut Business Card, and 3D Printed Mini Octopi.

The LED Candle simulates a real candle by turning off when wind is detected, and turning back on with a button press. The entire system can be toggled with an on/off switch.

Mini-projects for 6.810 Engineering Interactive Technologies.
