Halloween is my favorite holiday and hence I wanted to dedicate this midterm project to the season and make something fun and relevant!
I was excited about museums’ API that are available online and initially wanted to work with MoMA’s artists database. However, I have encountered many issues loading it into p5 (it’s forever loading on the screen) since it is such a large file. I ended up working with this herbs and spices data I found on Github via https://github.com/dariusk/corpora/blob/master/data/foods/herbs_n_spices.json
How exciting and scary that we are now combining ICM with Pcomp! I decided to try incorporating serial communication into a fun little sketch I created last week.
Can’t believe it’s already time to wrap up intro to fabrication. I’ve been having a lot of fun in this class and will definitely miss weekend/late night shop sessions. For my final project, I made a pumpkin carriage that will run (a little) when you place the pumpkin onto the button.
I had many ideas as soon as I learned about the material and fasteners assignment (mostly silly objects which seems to become a reoccurring theme in my work). The combination of felt and magnet is what I decided to work with this week. With the unique nature that magnet carries, I made a banana that can be peeled and reversed.
I spent a lot of time reviewing old materials before watching new videos this week and doing so allowed me to clear up a lot of confusions I had earlier this semester. Although I couldn’t make everything I wanted to make happen in this week’s assignment, I am quite happy with my creation for the first time!
I’ve been wanting to come up with a creative application from what I learned from each week’s lab yet I didn’t feel comfortable doing so with my limited experience in programing as well as physical computing. It was until just now that I began to develop a better understanding in electric circuits and hence I decided to make my first attempt in creating something fun this week!
Can’t believe that it has been almost a month since I started learning coding. I struggled with it everyday and wanted to jump into conclusion that it is just not for me. It didn’t take me long to become proficient with video and sound editing programs but I don’t know why coding is taking so long!
I’ve been wanting to combine physical computing and fabrication project since the beginning of the semester but haven’t had the ability to try it out until now. For this week’s enclosure assignment, I decided to create a mouse with a switch as its nose that will turn its red LED eyes on when it touches an object.
