Magnets, like wands, are magical!
In the new tutorial, Magical Magnetism: Intro to Reed Switches (Normally Open), by Jill Dawson, we will show you how to make a magnetic wand that can trigger a circuit you make with a reed switch.
A reed switch and magnet are an intriguing duo possessing magical qualities that may be applied in countless ways. Their mystical qualities make it possible to open or close a circuit with the power of magnetic force! That means you can create paper circuits that light up (or turn off) when triggered from a distance.
With the flick of a wrist, any circuit, including a programmed one, may be triggered using this type of switching mechanism.
