Step Switch

For this first assignment, I decided to create an open circuit that could only be closed if a conductor were to bridge the two gaps in the shoe outlines. For the purposes of this project, I attached aluminum foil to the soles of an old pair of sneakers in order to close the circuit.

I used two clip cables to attach to the jumper wires, and used three strips of copper tape on the “mat” itself that the copper would come into contact with the aluminum on the shoes.
