We at Mand Labs want you to make the best use of your stay-at-home time. Whether building cool projects with Mand Labs KIT-1 or getting creative with your own innovation, we want your time to be enriched with some learning coupled with fun activities. It is our consistent effort to help the creative soul in you be a true do-it-yourself (DIY) maker.
We have compiled a list of 5 cool projects from the KIT-1’s project library for you to work on and enhance your home. All you need is a little time and effort, as the projects are simple and can be picked up by anyone with some basic interest in electrical and electronics. We have simplified the building process for you through our step-by-steps. So, go ahead and get your hands messy!
Have you ever given it a thought as to how the street lamps work? How the lights are turned on in the evening and how they get automatically turned off in the morning? Or for instance, did you wonder how the garden lights work? Our automatic night lamp project will not only help you to understand how the circuits work, but also help you to build your own night lamp that you can use at home when you have a power cut.
Did you ever want to play detective and catch a burglar or a thief red handed? Here’s your chance to play with circuits and create your own alarm at home. The circuit can be assembled beneath the doormat, so that the moment anyone steps on the doormat, the switch gets pressed, making the buzzer go off. So, go on and enjoy the time at home while your buzzer takes care of your home security.
When you wait at the traffic signal did you ever wonder how the red, green and yellow lights blink? Well, you can learn about it today. The alternate blinking of LEDs project can show you how relay is used as a switch. The relay, which is an electromagnetic switch, is a perfect example of how we can use electromagnetic force to control any switch.
Did you know that your body can become a part of the circuit and current can be passed through it? If you are worried that it might give you an electric shock, our touch-activated switch project will show you that you don’t have to worry about anything. Just go ahead and try it out for yourself and flaunt your creativity skill among your peers.
Were you ever fascinated by the lights on highways or in the tunnels and mines? If you were wondering on how they work, our project on LED blinker will make you understand the process and at the same time help you create an LED flasher circuit in less than an hour. Built on a logic based on the Esaki Effect, named after its inventor Leo Esaki, the project demonstrates one of the applications of the Esaki effect. Leo was awarded the Nobel prize in physics in 1973 for his discovery.
Now that you have learnt to build some really cool projects, why don’t you try out the premium projects from KIT-1? We also look forward to your innovations. Please keep them coming. It’s simple, you can email us your projects at firstname.lastname@example.org. The best projects will not only be published here on our blogs but will also receive a surprise from us.
