DIY projects are great for a number of reasons. Not only do you (generally) end up with something that costs a fraction of what you’d pay at the store, but you also get a great sense of accomplishment. Knowing that you built something with your bare hands is one of the best feelings out there. (Plus you get full bragging rights with your friends.) Well, sometimes one of the most difficult parts about such projects is understanding the basics. That’s exactly why one modder decided to roll their own capacitors.
I’ll admit that when it comes to the finer points of electronics, I’m a bit clueless. However, I think if I followed the instructions in this video, I might have a better grasp on it. Heck, even after watching it, I think I understand things a bit better. If you want a fun project to help teach yourself, or especially your kids about how electronics work, this one is definitely worth checking out.
