Samuel Morse Interactive Photo with Circuit Scribe

Samuel Morse invented Morse code which was hugely important in the history of communication. We thought we'd give Morse our Circuit Scribe treatment and create an interactive photo that uses a Circuit Scribe tone buzzer to create Morse Code beeps.

For this project you'll need:

  • An electronic ink pen
  • A power component with battery
  • A buzzer
  • A long paper fastener and a short paper fastener. 

Here's the circuit that you need to draw using an Circuit Scribe electronic ink pen:

We used a long and a short paper fastener to create a momentary switch to drive the telegraphy machine. Put some sticky tape on the reverse of the picture to keep the paper fasteners in place and stop them from accidentally completing the circuit.

The Circuit Scribe buzzer component will beep whenever the circuit is completed so you can create long or short beeps.

The end result is a fun interactive photo with Samuel Morse demonstrating the use of his telegraph machine to transmit Morse Code.

 You can buy Circuit Scribe products on Amazon.
