Last night I gave a talk on VR for the Aberystwyth Science Cafe at the Arts Centre!
VR is a fascinating melting-pot of subjects: psychology, biology, technology, education, art, and more, so there was plenty to talk about!
It must have been quite a big audience – I took 30 pairs of anaglyph glasses along and we didn’t have quite enough! It was really good fun, I got a little bit carried away and talked for longer than I’d planned, but everybody stayed and I got some interesting questions.
Inspired by the discovery of conductive paint and a paper circuits workshop at EMF, we ran a workshop to make cards with LED circuits!
I had a bit of fun designing the logo for this one, and made a card featuring a reindeer who’s nose shines bright… The helpers had as much fun as the visitors in this festive, creative, glittery event.
The cards are made using copper tape, LEDs, and a coin cell battery to make a basic circuit.
Finish it off by taping the vertical side of the folded corner shut so that you can drop the battery in through the top to complete the circuit.
