03.0 Switch and Blink: The Jellyfish Switch [Michelle Spitzer]

The Jellyfish Switch

How it works:

The springs embedded in the clay are connected to the arduino pins.  The bearing and bolt on the bottom are connected to ground. When the pins are put into the springs, they touch the bearing or the bolt and close the circut. Voilà!

In order, the pictures are:

The switch, The pins in the springs, The switch open, The bearing and bolt (ground) on the base, The inside, the springs wired to the arduino (solder free :)…).

The Code:
