JOEL THE JOULE THIEF

JOEL THE JOULE THIEF

Joel was born around April of 2010 and he loves to steal dead batteries.  He was inspired by https://www.instructables.com/id/The-illuminated-LED-man-or-The-Joule-Thief-man/

He consists of:
– Solid core copper wire for a skeleton
– Vibration mounts for his feet
– Filtering toroid for his torso
– Red enamel wire for a nervous system
– Crimp-on spade and ring terminals for hands
– Prototyping PCB for a head
– A 10-K trimmer for a mouth
– NPN transistor for his nose
– 2 white leds for eyes
– Some sort of copper bushing
– Wire and solder
– And a Sparkfun sticker for character (the flame is a registered trademark of Sparkfun, the sticker was purchased from them)
