Resistor man

Create this cool piece of art from your electronic parts bin.

This makes the perfect christmas present!
I have given it to many people over the years, and they all loved it!
To guys, it's a really cool gadget. And for girls, it makes a nice piece of decorative art :)
Even my mom loves them.

Resistor man

You'll need:

  • 8 resistors.
  • 1 large resistor, or some other large long component with connectors in both ends. A capacitor might do, but they tend to have soft legs..
  • IC's might be cool also.. use your imagination.
  • 1 led, or other component suitable for posing as a head.
  • 1 scrap circuit board. The one I used once held the pwr and hdd leds in a computer.

Connect the arms and head to the torso.

Now, create his legs.

Make sure to give him hips, the first one I made, didn't get them, and he looked kinda strange.

He now needs to be firmly connected to both ground and Vcc :p

Once he is connected, bend him into a comfortable position and place him where he belongs, on top of your monitor.

If he doesn't work (as in walk, talk, eat, sleep and take over the world), please consult the circuit diagram and check if you've missed something :)
