For this assignment, I created a switch by attaching a pair of scissors to two wires. To improve the conductivity of one wire, I attached a copper foil to it to increase its surface area. I set up a circuit with two LEDs arranged in parallel to ensure they have the same level of brightness.
This type of switch can serve as a means of detecting when a user or player cuts an object. By counting the number of times the LED lights up, the switch can detect how many times the scissors were opened and closed.
