This page documents the creation of my LED enhanced name tag table tent. First I sketched my name in pencil leaving at least two inches of space on each side to leave room for a battery.
My idea is to place a red LED in the pupil of the eye in the letter R. I have decided to hide the copper tape circuit on the back of the paper. I first poked the LED legs through the paper to see where my copper lines will connect noting the cathode(-) anode(+) legs.
Next I sketched out my circuit noting the direction of current flow and placing a fold pocket for the battery.
Next I run my copper lines with a continuous piece of copper from each terminal of the battery to the line for the LED. N.B. I do not have the LED through the paper at this point.
Finally I insert the LED and use copper tape to secure it to the circuit.
This is a great example of what can be accomplished with a paper circuit. The painting is by Jie Qi who developed Chibitronics paper circuits. http://technolojie.com/pu-gong-ying-tu-dandelion-painting/
