This year I got interested in making lightboards, they're basically solid transparent panels like acrylic or glass which can be drawn on with markers. The sides of the panel are lit up with lights like LED's. This gives the effect to lit up the drawn colors on the transparent panel, which is a pretty cool effect. Pic related

Recently I got a 400kv stun gun module, which has a voltage multiplier built into it. This unit works but since its encased in epoxy it doesn't have good heatsink, which might make it vulnerable to overheating and melting down. Still, it might work for some experiments.



Seems easy enough to get small transformers from adapters, boil them to get the glue and stuff off and then wind them like in that video

Cute pic. Now I understand how electronics are made, thanks sensei!



Those are called surface mount parts, they don't have pins that go through they board and just get soldered (like glued) on top of it

In recent years we've been seeing more embedded components, which become a part of the circuit board (as in embedded inside it), but those are more difficult to get at for repairs, might be more practical for disposable circuits

These are the number codes

If you look at seven segment displays and look at those numbers they would seem pretty random for someone who doesn't know the number representations, I mean there are only 7 segments there but we use them for a 10 number system.

This one could also be used with individual segments representing the 10 digits from 0 to 9 so it offers a lot of options. Since it has 10 segments it also effectively works as a new sign language, since we have 10 fingers
