Side table inspired by The Jetsons #WearableWednesday

NewImage

Thanks to Cynthia for sending in this awesome looking table project! Check out the full build on Instructables.

My last build was the (martini) side table for my seating area.

After I finished that it was time to replace the clunky and ugly side table next to the boy’s stylish chair.

He had one request, namely that it had a drawer.

I had one idea, it had to have EL wire.

I had an old piece of damaged plywood from a temporary table. It was doing nothing but taking up space. I was determined to turn that into his table, somehow.

I decided an ellipse would make a nice table top, as it would visually look smaller than a rectangle shape having the same, usable surface area. Plus, I like curves more than 90 degree angles, all organic-looking and stuff.

Follow me in my spontaneous build…!

High Brightness Green Electroluminescent (EL) Wire – 2.5 meters – High brightness, long life: EL Wire, also known as Electroluminescent wire is a stiff wire core coated with phosphor and then covered with a protective PVC sheath. When an AC signal is applied to it, it glows an aqua (blue green) color. You can make it look different colors by changing the coating, for example this is a vivid lime green. It looks a little like thin neon. Very bendable, it keeps its shape and you can curl it around your finger. Its an easy way to add some glow to a project, not as bright as LEDs but uses a lot less power! Read more.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
