Pcomp Final- Waterfall

Our final idea is based on our midterm project: Instead of just using virtual water, we added real water into out project, exploring the line between the virtual world and reality. And because of that we are going to use real water, we cannot use monitor. As a result, we decided to use projection and…

Final Project Plan

Our final project changed a little from the initial version.  Because we are gonna to deal with real water, if we use traditional monitor to demonstrate our sketch, it will be a lot of glass boxes, which we worried that it’s  not clear enough, people may get confused and then affect their experience. So we…

Pcomp Final Project Concept

Based on my midterm project. Physically input controlling visual water in p5 is my midterm project. One idea based on this is to project the sketch to a wall and use sensors or Kinect to enable people playing with the visual water (not necessarily water). I thought it would be fun and would attract people…

Pcomp Midterm

Concept Our idea for midterm is to physically control the visual water. Initially, we planed to use a potentiometer to control a servo which is connected with a cup, making it tilt, then water in the p5 sketch changes. However after talked with Tom, we decided to use a valve which is more natural for…

Pcom Week4

This week, I tried a speaker with changing frequency depending on the ultrasonic distance sensor. The Schematic is displayed below. This is the code. It’s a simple circuit, I combine the circuit with fabrication and make a speaker with a “body”.    

Pcom Week3

This week, I tried to code on Arduino and had a sense of digital input-output and analog input-output. As to this week’s lab, I tried a light adjusting LED, which would emit stronger light when ambient light is weaker. At first, the value that the light sensor captures varies when there is a different environment, I…

Pcom Week2

This week we have a little glance of Arduino and basic electronic components. Since I’m from Electronic Technology, I already familiar with those basic rules of the circuit. But I may have problems about the term of certain components or I already forgot most of my electronic knowledge. The assignment is to build a circuit with a…

Pcom Week 1

This week was inspiring, we made a prototype of hair care machine in a group. It contains some functions such like wash, dry and style your hair in 10 secs. Also it can customize through a bunch of choices like your gender, length of hair and what specific hair style you want. It’s just a…
