These creations are the result of the amputations from everyday electronic items and stuck together to make something new. Here is something I made using a USB cable, some LED’s from my RC car and that giant round thing I happened to find in some DIY stuff I bought:
After jostling around with that big, round thing, I found out that it could light an LED like it were a battery. After consulting Google, I found that it was called a Supercapacitor. When one applies potential difference across its terminals, it stores that potential difference by placing an insulator to block the flow of charge once the current through it is stopped.
I have been trying to create other strange things using whatever scrap I find. Just like Frankenstein, my creations run on electricity and are made of parts that usually are not seen together. However, I enjoy “reinventing” like this since it reminds of the times when I would never follow the instructions in those LEGO manuals and built anything that came to my mind. Well, this is my way of learning new things: break it to make it.
