Sharks, Cats, and Lasers!

Paper, circuits, weird art… put it all together!

Okay, not really lasers… just LEDs in straws that look like lasers. I’ve been working on some paper circuit projects for Brown Dog Gadgets and after we talked about the Darth Vader card and other “laser” cards I mentioned Shark with Lasers and Laser Cats… so we had to make them. (Find these and more in the Paper Circuits section of the BDG site.)

These cards use drinking straws with LEDs and a bit of hot glue to give the laser effect. Check out this Shark with a Frickin’ Laser Beam

Maybe you prefer cats to sharks? We’ve got that covered… Here’s a Laser Cat! (Not to be confused with Laser Cats, the short film.)

The diagram on each card shows the circuit, which is activated by a switch mechanism on the other side of the card (not shown.) More downloadable paper craft circuit projects can be found on the BDG Dozuki site. I’ll highlight some of the fun work we do every now and then.
