This multi-colored electronic star was constructed almost entirely out of “soft” materials.


The body is made of layers of paper and mounting board, with aluminum foil in the center for increased internal reflection. The circuit consists of copper tape, one RGB LED (with resistors) and a slider made of copper tape and mounting board. Moving the slider determines which terminals on the LED are active.


This project was created for Catarina Mota’s Tech Crafts at ITP.
