  • SparkFun Electronics: Pop-up Paper Engineering http://bit.ly/CentaurusPaperEng Brian Huang Education Engineer Angela Sheehan Education Outreach Linz Craig Education Outreach
  • About us... SparkFun Electronics Boulder, CO ● Founded in 2003 by Nathan Seidle ● Focus in shortcuts to engineering design ● Design / Develop Electronics for Building, Tinkering, Making ● Rooted in Open Source Hardware Community
  • Today You will learn what makes a circuit work and apply this to create/make something novel and unique. You will apply the engineering design process you’ve practiced in school on today’s design task.
  • Basic Circuits ` + Circuit → Circle
  • Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are simple, low-cost semiconductor devices that produce light when voltage is applied in the correct polarity.
  • Modifications to the LED
  • Using Copper Tape on Paper
  • Copper Tape is Conductive ...but sticky stuff isn’t!!! Try to use one continuous piece of tape for each section (grey parts). Fold, crease through each corner. Or - make sure shiny part is touching shiny.
  • Adhesive is non-conductive… Making Corners with one piece of tape FOLD DIAGONAL TO MAKE A CORNER FOLD FOLD FORWARD to CREASE (Sticky side exposed) DONE! Try to keep the piece of tape continuous across corners and through-out the circuit.
  • But, what about when you run out of tape?? Joining Traces Overlap Shiny-side to Shinyside BREAK FOLD BACK JOINING PIECE FOLD 1/2 AGAIN Joining by touching the SHINY-SIDE to the SHINY-SIDE of each section. Secure with Clear Tape.
  • A few definitions... We said copper tape is conductive, but the sticky stuff is not. Define the word conductive. The flap is down, and shiny is touching shiny. This is called a closed circuit.
  • And a few more... This is called an open-circuit. Define “opencircuit” The flap is up.
  • A few template ideas Push button Drawings and designs courtesy of Jie Qi at MIT Media Lab: http://hlt.media.mit.edu/?p=2505
  • A few template ideas Pull-Tab Switch Drawings and designs courtesy of Jie Qi at MIT Media Lab: http://hlt.media.mit.edu/?p=2505
  • How else can you make a switch?
  • A little inspiration??
  • Draw, sketch, make something unique! Your turn...
  • Design Process Problem Statement
  • Design Process Planning…. Sketch, write, doodle… think about the following: •WHO IS IT FOR? •WHAT SHOULD IT DO? •WHAT SHOULD IT LOOK LIKE?
  • Phase II -- Adding pop-up Paper Engineering to Paper Circuits
  • Pop-up Cuts V-Mouth Cut Place a dot near the center of the new rectangle. Draw a perpendicular line to the folded edge of the cardstock. Folded Edge
  • Pop-up Cuts V-Mouth Cut Cut along the line to the dot. Folded Edge
  • Pop-up Cuts V-Mouth Cut Fold the right-hand side to form a triangular flap and crease. Flip the card over and crease the triangle over on the other side as well.
  • Pop-up Cuts V-Mouth Cut Repeat for the left flap. Fold the lefthand side to form a triangular flap and crease. Flip the card over and crease the triangle over on the other side.
  • Opening the Mouth Open the card up like a tent. Using your thumb or fingers, push the top triangle and bottom triangle through to the inside.
  • Finally Close the card and press firmly. Re-open to work the mouth-action.
  • Variations? What other ideas do you have? Add LEDs, switches, push buttons... Draw a jagged line instead of a straight one and you have a mouth with teeth! Concepts, images, and credit to Robert Sabuda: http://wp.robertsabuda.com/how-to-make-a-v-fold-mouth-pop-up/
  • Resources, Credits, and Thank yous Thank you to Jie Qi and the High-Low Tech Lab at MIT for the concepts, designs, and artwork for these paper circuits. Thank you to Robert Sabuda for his pivotal work in pop-up books and pop-up art. Full-scale templates can be downloaded as a PowerPoint file here.
