Fabrication WK1 - Flashlight

Updated: Nov 1

This week's assignment is to build a flashlight. I begin by laying out the basic structure of the flashlight by building a simple circuit with a battery powering an LED light and a pushbutton to control the light.

Having not done any physical computing or fabrication projects for over a year, I had to first test out the circuit on a breadboard before soldering the components together

For housing, I used a toilet paper roll found in the junk shelf. All the components are placed inside and a hole is cut for the switch

I also removed the reflection component from a light found on the junk shelf to add to my flashlight, but it doesn't seem to make the light brighter, though it does make it look more like a flashlight

Finally, the reflection component was taped onto the flash light.
