Cyberpunk Style Hand Tornado

Type: Analog Sensor

This swatch is for a cyberpunk style Hand Tornado. This is essentially a glove with a motor on it that is a fan. The fan is activated when the FSR that is in the thumb is being pressed, then if the potentiometer to adjust the speed is turned; the fan will operate. I came up with this idea in regards to my limited parts and because I was sitting one day and wanted a small fan that I could use only when needed. So I thought I could use that as inspiration for this creation which is small and portable. It isn't cumbersome like a regular fan and more accessible for someone who doesn't like wind constantly hitting them but wants to stay cool. I came up with the glove design/fan on hand idea in light of the new Cyberpunk 2077 game and decided that this specific type of glove wouldn't be a bad idea because its not very warm but still sturdy to build on. However, the cons include all the wiring and breadboard and such, which makes it less portable. This could have been with more permanent or applicable wires or other conductive materials, but due to COVID-19 I was unable to develop further.

Bootleg Custom Transistor:

LED on left. LDR on right. Both inside a drinking straw which is then covered in dark tape. Note: The short leg of the LED is then wrapped around the current releasing leg of the LDR.

Current Split:

The exiting current of the motor is split through the BJT PNP transistor so that only when both the FSR sensor and the potentiometer are allowing enough current through will the circuit allow the current to properly go reach the ground rail; spinning the motor.
Note: You can see the LED leg wrapped around the LDR leg closest to bottom of the image.

Additional Notes:

This is an original piece, although it is most likely already done, I personally created the circuitry and idea.
