I do not yet have a detailed breakdown of what I want to do with this video. I have some good ideas that I believe could go somewhere though.
One of the first things to explain in this video is the difference between analog and digital. This could be a good place to incorporate humor. Something we might do for digital: Spray someone with a water hose and ask them whether the water is on or not. Very simple, and very obvious whether it is on or off. For analog, we could first spray the person with tiny water guns, and ask how wet they are: Not very wet. Then, we could spray the person with bigger water guns, or with waterhoses and buckets and ask how wet they are: Very wet. I might not end up using that specific example, but would like to do something along those lines.
I would like to have people talk through and walk through the use of analog and digital signals in communications devices. They might act as though they were the different parts of the communications device.
A computer reading a CD, for example, would read the bumps on a CD as a digital signal, but would eventually have to translate that to an analog signal to play music. Digital to analog translation could be a good concept to explain, further displaying the difference between the two signals.
It might also be possible to build an electronic circuit to display the difference between analog and digital signals.
