Part 4. Put it in a Box

Rachel edited this page Aug 21, 2015 · 1 revision


I needed a way to attach the ultrasonic ranger to my trash can lid while keeping the Yun on the outside of my metal can. It seemed like the perfect time for my handy-dandy Hello Kitty duct tape and my superhero sound effects washi tape.

I used the washi tape to cover the back of the sensor so that none of the solder points would touch my metal trash can lid. I then used generous amounts of tape to attach it to the lid.

The Yun went inside of an extra box that could hang over the side of the trash can.


There are all sorts of trash cans out there. I personally wish that I had one of those pull-out drawer cans because the Yun and sensor could be taped to the roof of the drawer and not be attached to the trash can at all.
