We’ve written about wireless electricity in the recent past, and explained how we, and many in the tech industry, believe that the not-too-distant future will be dominated by this technology. Gone will be the days of dealing with rattails of wiring from our PC’s, game systems, lamps, chargers, etc. Instead, wireless induction coils will power our gadgets for a more efficient, eco-friendly transfer of energy.
Summer is a time for fun and enjoyment and for families, it’s a time to spend with children and teach them important lessons about life. Consider a garage project with electromagnets, such as this one from the Do-It-Yourself website Instructables. It’s relatively simple, and provides an important insight to the world of electronics, and specifically how they function in relationship to the gadgets we use everyday and (often) take for granted.
It will also teach kids, and yourself, simple electronics, which can come in handy for a variety of things, such as that time your A/C went out and the repair guy wasn’t available.
If you’re more tech-inclined, you could consider a floating lamp project, to learn more about magnets and lighting. Observe the video below as a prime example. Summer projects are great fun for the whole family, and these ones are good places to start.
