Statue of Liberty
I've been experimenting with creating light-up pop-ups, in a book controlled via a Photon microcontroller. I initially tried to light up both sides of the statue (and both sides of the book in her arms), but I ended up abandoning the idea after several failed attempts (and lots of short circuits). It had seemed easy in theory, but it was far more fiddly than I expected.
|The copper tape, connected to the Photon, runs from the center of the book up the pop-up's arm.|
|Only one side of the statue lights up.|
|I used conductive fabric tape in the gutter.|
|I overlaid a fresh piece of paper with a cut-out for the pop-up.|
