ICM Final: The Complete deal!

I should be be sleeping as I write this but hey, it’s one less thing off my plate! After many offices hours and staring glazed-eye at the screen many a late night, hoping the code will just will itself to on to the screen (or work for that matter), it is done! So we all…

Fabrication Week 4: Enclosures

I’m going to start off with my takeaway — I know it breaks form, but I am so beyond done with this project, I just want to get the main takeaway before the mess.  Trying to get the right size is hard for outside components. The digital caliper can only do so much. Honestly If…

PComp Final: BoM/Timeline

Now that we have down what the design will be, I can try to get a Bill of Materials made! It may not be exact and things are subject to change after the future iterations but here is what I am using for now. Link to the Google Sheets Doc And here is rough Timeline:…

PComp Final: Secondary feedback and moving forward!

So after much trial and error and lots and lots of discussion, I’ve decided to  keep it the 3 LEDs and style the pendant like a stop light. That being said, my next stop was to get a breadboard going with all the components to start the code and debug from there! So first was…

Fabrication Week 3: Revisiting The Holocron!

This week’s focus is the laser cutter– which I’m excited to try out. For this project, I thought to revisit my holocron” flashlight” from the first week. I think the design would be nicely done with the cutter. So I downloaded the template for the 50W cutter, and the intent is to make the Mark…

PComp Final: Initial design and feedback

So we centralized on the concept of an interaction indicator of sorts. And with that in mind I made a survey– unfortunately the majority of people who gave me the feedback wasn’t the intended audience, which skewed things. But I learned a lot of things. The possibility of expanding things, my revision of a system…

Fabrication Week 2: Modular Game Board

So this week’s theme is ‘Multiples’ to get us out of comfort zone and understand a repeatable process with tools. My idea was a sort of modular game board that allows you to play Chess, Checkers, and Tic-Tac-Toe. So my 5 pieces was more like 8– 4 for the board, 4 for the  pieces. This…

ICM: Final Project Proposal

Okay so my proposal is a visual periodic table of elements that depicts each element as its atom. So this: But depicted like so: Hopefully using the json data I can pull out each electron and proton/neutron count to draw each one accurately. Ideally I would love to get all 100+ elements in the span…

ICM Week 10: This Dot

So I haven’t really been  feeling all too well, just burned out and unwell, and slightly unoriginal this week. I just a little modified  the gravity code for mobile. And  made a little silly thing.  So here is the full screen from you mobile people: https://alpha.editor.p5js.org/full/B1od2XFge And here is the code.

Fabrication Week 1: Holocron “Flashlight”

This inspiration is of course based of my  one of the prop ideas I’ve been kicking around in my mind for a  bit. Jedi and Sith Holocrons from Star Wars. I worked a little backwards here– working on the box  design itself and going from there. A little weird but it spared me some grief!…
