NE555 Vibration Sensor

So, this is a very simple circuit that can be utilized in so many ways.
In the video below I have done it on a breadboard (solderless) so you can see how it works.

The sensor can be anything and everything that touches and creates continuity when “vibrated”. You can use a couple of wires, a spring and a wire, filaments, the options are endless.

I would love it if you subscribe to my electronics channel, and feel free to leave comments and maybe drop a like 😉


I’ve started tinkering with electronics, which I haven’t done in a long, long while. I was never any good at it, but I do have a crude, basic understanding.

This is the first circuit I made, a simple 3v to 12v booster circuit.

It takes power from a single cell 18650 battery (3.7V) and boosts it up to ~12V when pushing the button 😉
