I made this project inspired by this strange and funny news "Astrophysicist gets magnets stuck up nose while inventing coronavirus device" https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2020/mar/30/astrophysicist-gets-magnets-stuck -up-nose-while-inventing-coronavirus-device and because I found the idea very interesting and knew it didn't have to be that complicated to make it :)
Let’s face it — people are gonna touch their faces. Sometimes faces itch, especially during allergy season. But the first step toward quitting something like that is to become cognizant of just how often you do it.
A great way to introduce kids to block based coding and 3D printing. Also a useful project to remind kids about the rules to stop spreading the virus as much as possible!
The electronics needed are ready to be used for your future projects once this one is not needed anymore!
In an effort to gain the upper hand over the virus, we just mixed a couple of ingredients in our magic blender: Adafruit’s Circuit Playground Express, Microsoft Adafruit’s MakeCode, some 3D printing and… voilá. All files are available online. Hackaday hosts the plans necessary to build and code the product.
The product itself paired with a guided lesson from an educator/teacher aims to help children to develop this kind of person/object thinking, making their minds think about how they interact with objects and encouraging them to create ‘expressive new interactions with the world around them’.
All the parts can be prepared at a FabLab and assembled together anywhere else.
