Fabrication Week 6

This week is about making something moving and I decided to make a lamp with rotating light sources. Step1:I laser cut the lampshade and tried it on the cardboard first and then cut the paper.   Step2: I stuck the paper to another layer that transparent to light with hot glue and rolled them up….

ICM Week6

This week, I used some simple html element to make a interactive page. I create a button, a slider and a place for text input. It’s much easier than I just use p5 javascript to create those interactive things.

Fabrication Week 5

This week’s assignment is to make something with 2 materials that we are not familiar with, and we cannot use any plywood or acrylic. Instead of buying materials online, I bought my materials in Blick, cause I didn’t plan early which I shouldn’t do it again next week. I bought 3 pieces of foam boards,…

ICM Week5

After learning array, I can try a bunch of new effects with only bubbles. This week, I tried a sketch using array and class. And this is what I did this week. This is my code: It looks simple, and that’s why we are using array and class, which would make our code more readable….

Video&Sound Week4

This week, our group made helmets, went out and shoot a bunch of rough footages. Based on our concept, we need to make a helmet with a small nozzle, so we used balloons to make it. Basically, we just blew balloons and taped with those balloons with adhesive tape. Then burst balloons, we got helmets….

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”.    

Fabrication Week4

This week we are going to make an enclosure. After so many inspirations in class, it’s just becoming harder to choose one. Since the enclosure could combine the assignment of physical computing, I finally planed to make a speaker. Step 1: Finish the circuit upon Arduino. I used the ultrasonic distance sensor to change the…

ICM Week4

This week, I got to know how to use a function that I create to organize the code. I tried to restructure one of my old sketches, and the code is significantly much cleaner. Specifically,  I created a function to draw a slider. This function includes two parameters: xlo and halfrect, which means the x position…

Video&Sound Week 3

This week, my group members and I had the brainstorm for the final video project. Because we are all interested in design fiction, which in my point of view is to design an imaginary solution solving existed issue or foreseeable issue. These are some ideas we came up with: A contraption like an invisible bubble that…

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…
