The Light Theremin - Manhattan Style Construction
Make magazine’s Weekend Projects has issued a challenge to construct one of their circuits in any other way than how they planned it. Here is my go at it. Manhattan style construction has appeared a few times on the Make blog and is popular with the ham radio crowd. It involves an un-etched piece of copper clad board with small “pads” of clad board super-glued to it. These little islands act as the connection points between components and can be added quickly or snapped off if needed. The larger piece of board serves as the ground so it is always easy to solder into.
