Muscle flexing switch


For this project, I took brainstorming to another level. I actually did multiple projects but since I like gyming (although results not showing) so I decided to do the flexing the way our fathers and grandfathers did it: bicep flexing. Something that bothered me in this is that while connecting the circuit it burned my skin so much that my hands began shaking. However, I liked the project so I just went on with it.


a simple circuit and attach two pieces of aluminum foil on both ends of the wire where the switch would normally go. Attach one piece of foil on the bicep and the other on the forearm. When I begin flexing – the circuit is completed.




It felt really good engaging gyming in any way in an academic course. Looking forward to engaging more with circuits and Arduino.
