Force-sensing resistor

Simple switch circuit

To gain better understanding of electronic circuits, I built a simple LED circuit.

Later, I added a force-sensing resistor. I used the resistor manually as a switch to close the circuit.

One thing if very clear to me know — whether it will go through some dead LEDs, or through a few burned down dc engines, I learn better when I try things hands one. Since I started to use the digital multimeter, I was able to test my understanding of circuits on live working components, but more importantly, I started to feel more confident about my knowledge. Can’t wait to build a more challenging piece.
