Electronic Cloud – Assembly
Lets invent your Electronic Cloud!
To find out how to set up your Electronic Cloud you can guide yourself through the video or follow the steps below.
Step by step
Place the switches on the breadboard as you see in the PICTURE.
Each switch has two rows of three pins. Make sure that these rows are arranged horizontally when placed on the breadboard.
Then place the yellow strands. Its tips should always be on the column corresponding to the first pin on each of the switches.
Place the LED. Note that the LED legs are not the same. They have different lengths that allow us to distinguish them. This is true for the standart LED, with two legs, and for our RGB, with four.
The longest leg is the positive one. The other three correspond to red (R = Red), green (G = Green) and blue (B = Blue).
Pick up a resistance and bend its legs. Place it on the breadboard in the column corresponding to the middle pin of the first switch. The other leg should connect to the column corresponding to the R leg of the LED.
Fold the legs of another resistance and place it on the breadboard in the column corresponding to the middle pin of the second switch. The other leg must connect to the column corresponding to leg G of the LED.
Fold the legs of the third resistor and place it on the breadboard in the column corresponding to the middle pin of the last switch. The other leg should connect to the column corresponding to leg B of the LED.
Place the red cable as you see in the PICTURE. One end should be on the positive leg column of the LED. The other will connect to the battery.
Place the batteries in the holder. The batteries have positive and negative poles. One of the bases is flat, it is the negative pole, and the other has a button or a bubble, and it is the positive side
The battery holder also gives us clues on how to place them. The flat base should be on the side with a spring and the other base of the battery on the flat part of the battery holder.
Connect the wires from the battery holder to the breadboard.
The red wire of the support must be in the column corresponding to the red cable (above or below the red cable). The black wire of the support must be in the column corresponding to the first pin of the first switch.
Check that everything works by turning the switches on and off. If it doesn’t work, go back and try to find out what’s not right. If so, keep building your Electric Cloud!
… and then place the capsules on the switches, in their respective colors.
Remove the film from the bottom of the breadboard and glue it to the marked area of part A.
Assemble part B and part C on part A.
Assemble part D to part B and C.
Assemble part E in part A.
Place the cotton around the LED and try turning the switches on and off.
Find out all possible combinations and customize your cloud! If you want, you can glue the base of the cloud to the case of the batteries and everything is neat!
