Electronics at Make Tokyo Meeting 07 #mtm07

Posted on Wednesday, December 7th, 2011 in conferences, Maker Faire by Ian

These LED displays and circuit boards are assembled entirely inside a bottle. Amazing soldering work!

Below we’ve got lots of electronics goodness. An umbrella that turns rain into music, a force-feedback mouse, $13 DIY radiation detectors, bio-feedback jewelry, and more.

Dead-bug assembled batteries use liquid to power LEDs.

There were lots of Twitter-integrated projects. This uses a USB receipt printer to print Tweets about Make Tokyo Meeting.

This Twitter project takes a picture, posts it to Twitter, and then prints it out.

A force-feedback mouse. When you tap the ball the motors pull on wires connected to the mouse, giving the sensation of actually pushing against an object.

    could you show us more photos of those circuit boards assembled inside a bottle?

    Is there any info on those ‘physical’ nobs? There is also a disney (?) Game that uses this principle to steer cars on an iPad

    About the soldering in the bottle I think I got some more.

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
  • Geoff: Is it still Sunday somewhere? If so, yes please.
