I'm trying to recreate the system in a toy called an Energy Orb. It was a plastic ball with a flashligh bulb (or LED)and two watch batteries in it. There was no on/off switch, but there were two strips of metal on the surface of the plastic, and the light would come on if a person touched both strips. Or, if one person touched one strip, and a different person touched the other, the light would turn on when these persons touched each other. I thought the person was completing the circuit between the two batteries and the bulb. I'd like to know how this worked or how to build a system that would work this way.
