ICM Week 9: Pretty as a Picture!

With my Final project more or less confirmed for this class, I can sort of breathe easy with this? But I don’t know, we have a lot to do to get there. But for now, my focus is on this week’s sketch, focusing on using either the sound or video. (Perhaps both if I’m feeling…

PComp Midterm: An Exercise in Disaster/Failure

So first off I want to thank Nate for being an awesome partner and understanding, He pretty much figured everything out while I sat there staring like Moss from IT Crowd while everything is all on fire, like so: Summing up my Midterm Project Experience in a nutshell. First off my photos were corrupted so…

ICM Week 8: The Curse of the Broken JSON!

This week other than Serial/Synthesis week has been my worst. Literally nothing was working. My original data sheet (This guy right here)  was being very unforgiving to me. As I sat there trying everything I thought might work…alas with no avail. So I took inspiration from the Getting Started with p5.js book. I know, not…

ICM Lab: Wireless Serial/SPI Communication

So this week has been another week of despair, as as soon as I fixed my first issue with my midterm project, we have another going on. I might need to play around with things for a bit. But as of this writing I am meeting up with my partner and having a jam session…

Video & Sound Final!

After seven long weeks, today is the day! The last day of Video and Sound! So after  four long weeks my video project is complete! So the concept was a ‘cheesy’ YouTube tutorial on “How to Code Human”. With me as the coder, Stan as the “Human”, and Grau as our wonderful cameraman and editor!…

ICM Week 7: Dom Objects

Since I do like to add a little personal bits of my life in these…I have had the misfortune of catching my first cold of the school year! Of course it had to be right before midterms! (So hopefully I’ll be able to addend class Thursday, if being a little sniffly.) So to the sketch!…

PComp Lab: Serial Input/Output

So first, I know it’s just slightly uninspired, my original intention was to do something off the sketch we went over in class but I’m stuck home  (with my first cold of year!) with only two working pots,  and if need be will revisit it later on. (I was some issues with  my hands soldering…

ICM Week 5

I don’t have really much to say outside of Synthesis being a bit of a rough patch (serial stuff is still a little confusing) But really glad I did the sit down with Dan to get my code refined! So it started like this: (Not seen is the massive amounts of repeated functions!) to this:…

Week 4 Reading

So went a little backwards, since they were light reading, the Happy Feedback Machine is an amazing project and even I felt like a kid again looking at it! It’s a great design that is free to many interpretations and countless of reuse! And that of course, at least in my opinion, we as adults…

Synthesis Project!

So today we fused the two classes and mixed out p5 programming with the arduino. After some flubs at first, we got it going. My partner Alejandro and I decided to go with simple photoresistors, and when as hand went of the sensor it would show a day or night scene. Needless to say we…
