Come visit us!

We will have a booth at the Elephant&Castle MakerFaire, where we will deliver a workshop! We will show how to make paper electronics from recycled newspapers and smart materials. Come join us!  

GP2Y0A21YK Proximity sensor + LEDs

This sketch shows how to control Sharp GP2D12 and GP2Y0A21YK¬†Distance sensors and use the detection range to switch on a series of 8 LED. This is one of the most inexpensive ways to… Continue reading

PIEZO SENSOR (WITH LED AND FIBER OPTIC CABLE)

This video shows how to activate an LED through touch, using a piezo sensor connected to an Arduino bard. The sensor was previously embedded between two sheets of homemade paper; by touching the… Continue reading

CAPACITIVE SENSOR (WITH LED AND FIBER OPTIC CABLE)

This video demonstrates how after having embedded alluminium foil and LEDs in home made paper, you can then make a capacitive sensor! We attached the alluminium foil to an Arduino pin and used… Continue reading
