The workshop for Audio Pop (transmit sound via bone).
There is something really satisfying about making your own circuit board.
Soldering something this small needs some serious soldering skills. I accidentally burnt a bit of my audio cord. But what I realized was that having a good soldering iron makes a WORLD of difference. (My LOL shield was a nightmare.)
And most times, when soldering, I wish I had hands like this:
Yeah… trying to hold solder, soldering iron and thing needed to be soldered in place is tricky with two hands.
Ayo drew us a model on the board, which was really helpful for me.
So then, I was able to make my own model.
Ayo said it looked good so I went for it.
Did a simple design on the back with my name on it.
And then we dipped it in ACID!!
Mine came out pretty nicely! Very gratifying.
Next time, I get to solder these onto it.
First we drew the circuit on the paper, and Ayo helped us to check if it is right or not.
And then, we try to drew the circuit on the board.
After that, we put the board into acid solution and waited for about 20 minutes!
I picked my board out, and put it into water. After that, I clean it by the cotton-padded with alcohol.
That’s what it looks like in the end of the class.
