PROJECTS: THE BRAIN MACHINE
6b. To hold the loose wires in place
while they are being glued, prepare
eight 4" strips of Magic Tape by
folding a small bit of each end over
to stick onto itself. Stick the tape
pieces where you can reach them
while gluing the wires to the glasses
in the next step.
6c. Use a toothpick to thinly spread
silicone adhesive between the wires
and along the top of the glasses, then
glue the wires along the glasses. Use
the tape strips to keep the wires in
place while the adhesive hardens. Also
tape the headphone jack in place.
Wait for the adhesive to harden, about
1– 2 hours, then remove the tape.
NOTE: Doubling the ends
over makes it much easier
to pull off the tape strips
after the adhesive hardens.
7. APPLY COOL GRAPHICS (OPTIONAL)
7a. Using the templates you created
earlier, cut out lens-shaped pieces
from your graphics for the left and
right lenses. Cut a hole in each one
where the back of the LEDs will poke
7b. Apply a very thin layer of silicone
adhesive (spread with your finger) in
a horizontal strip on the back of each
cutout. Affix them to the front of the
glasses. Now they look cool!
