Chibitronics pte Ltd Booth
Circuit Stickers are electronic stickers that you can use to build glowing, sensing, and interac-tive projects without any complicated equipment or programming skills. All you need is your imagination. Use them to add electronics to any sticker-friendly surface: paper, fabric, plastic, the sky’s the limit! Building circuits with them is fun and easy – just stick them onto a surface like you would with a normal sticker, and build up a circuit by sticking several stickers together and adding a battery.

They are an approachable way to learn and create electronics through craft, whether you’re just starting out with circuits or creating complex interactive artworks.

Annikken Pte Ltd Booth
We have been making simple games using Arduino. Games that use the Arduino board and mobile phone. I want to build a shooting gallery game with sensors. The target will display an animation when you have been hit by a plastic dart. Players can download a mobile app and control the blaster with their phones. 2 players will challenge each other to hit their opponents target.

Players can see how the electronics board are build together to make this awesome Arduino project. Don’t have to spend a lot of money to have to make your own electronic game station.

There will be 2 opposing teams / characters . Each will have a target that will be fitted with a piezoelectric sensor. This sensor will be connected to the Arduino Leonardo board and with an Annikken Andee shield. The blaster is a plastic toy cannon that is 10 cm high and 8 cm wide. The target will be 21 x 18 cm in size. Find out More
