Get hands-on and get learning

Well, the holiday season is just round the corner and we at Mand Labs want you to make the best use of your time. Coupled with the season’s fun and merry making, we want your holidays to be enriched with some learning as well. And what better way to prepare for the New Year than getting some creativity skills that will last you a lifetime!

We have compiled a list of 5 projects from the KIT-1’s project library for you to work on and enhance your home this festive season. All you need is a little time and effort, as the projects are simple and can be picked up by anyone with some basic interest in electrical and electronics. We have simplified the building process for you through our step-by-steps. So, go ahead and get your hands messy!

 

# Automatic night lamp


Have you ever given it a thought as to how the street lamps work? How the lights are turned on in the evening and how they get automatically turned off in the morning? Or for instance, did you wonder how the garden lights work? Our automatic night lamp project will not only help you to understand how the circuits work, but also help you to build your own night lamp that you can use at home when you have a power cut.

#Burglar alarm


Did you ever want to play detective and catch a burglar or a thief red handed? Here’s your chance to play with circuits and create your own alarm. The circuit can be assembled beneath the doormat, so that the moment anyone steps on the doormat, the switch gets pressed, making the buzzer go off. So, go on and enjoy the holiday season while your buzzer takes care of your home security.

#Alternate blinking of LEDs


When you wait at the traffic signal did you ever wonder how the red, green and yellow lights blink? Well, you can learn about it today. The alternate blinking of LEDs project can show you how relay is used as a switch. The relay, which is an electromagnetic switch, is a perfect example of how we can use electromagnetic force to control any switch.

#Touch-activated switch


Did you know that your body can become a part of the circuit and current can be passed through it? If you are worried that it might give you an electric shock, our touch-activated switch project will show you that you don’t have to worry about anything. Just go ahead and try it out for yourself and flaunt your creativity skill among your peers.

#LED flasher (Blinker)


Were you ever fascinated by the lights on highways or in the tunnels and mines? If you were wondering on how they work, our project on LED blinker will make you understand the process and at the same time help you create an LED flasher circuit in less than an hour. Built on a logic based on the Esaki Effect, named after its inventor Leo Esaki, the project demonstrates one of the applications of the Esaki effect. Leo was awarded the Nobel prize in physics in 1973 for his discovery.
