Because of the requirements of the autorouter we were using, our board outline needed to consist of '4 node paths' however the generated file we were given, consisted of simple lines. After searching for a while, we realized there was no existing way to do this automatically through a script and hen...

After coming to the conclusion that copper tape was more conductive than aluminum film, we discovered that using the copper tape on thin plastic yielded better results than the copper tape on paper because the plastic is more durable than paper. We continued experimenting and through trial and error...

While trying to create a way for realiable electrical connections using copper coated paper I considered the idea of a 'customizable breadboard’. This system would be designed so components are placed through holes like a breadboard but instead of using wires and standardized internal connections...

The goal of this investigation was to figure out how feasable it would be to allow real time input gathering without the use of any external sensors. My initial attempt was the use the change in resistance from placing a finger on the conductive material, however I was not successful as the change s...

After realizing that copper performed better than aluminum in the experiments, we decided to investigate some properties of both materials as well as the results for different types of cuts. Types of cuts: Table of results for resistance testing:Measuring resistance on the aluminum film:...

Our goal is to create a way of connecting electronics on a paper-like surface without the use of external wires. Our initial method was to use plastic with an aluminum coating on one side as our medium. We first used X-shaped cuts and isolated channels to connect electrical elements: But after so...
