    I love the Magrittian phrase “This wasn’t really a tree… I just twisted the wires and moves around the components to make it look like a tree.”

    Surely every artist should be required to put that on all their work. “This isn’t really a lady’s face, I just smeared paint around on a canvas to make it look like a lady’s face.

    Is that a short across the battery terminals?  That seems odd.

      If it were simply a single wire across the terminals, it would be. However, the LEDs and resistors (the beige thingys) provide a more controlled energy release through the circuit via heat and light.

      • LintMan says:

        But all that other stuff is in parallel with the LEDs and resistors.  If you have (say) 2 resistors in parallel, the total resistance uses the formula:
        Rtotal = (R1 * R2)  /  (R1 + R2)
        So if R1 == 0, the total resistance == 0.

        I can only think that the wires don’t have a good connection..

  4. Man, I can hear a Kraftwerk Christmas rendition of that track in my head even thought they never made one. though this is close… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4ChLwxy30k

    I’ve got a commercially made version of this that was given to me probably about 10 years ago. I wonder if it still works.
