Punching that alien

For our Physical Computing final, Kim and I decided to create a punchable alien bust with a Processing sketch that would have the alien face getting bruised and bloodied as it was punched. It took us a while to get

DC Motors: Transistors and H-bridge labs

So I’m doing this week’s lab with Allison, and we came across some confusion over what a transistor does and how it’s structured pretty early on. The diagram on the lab shows that power goes from the Collector, to the

Multiple analog sensors and serial comms

Okay, so I’m having a lot of difficulty making the Arduino send out information from multiple sensors to the computer — I haven’t even gotten to the Processing bit part, yet! Argh!!!!!!!! Here’s my problem: I decided to use several

Human-centric design

I was having difficulty choosing what kind of ‘public interactive technology’ to use as an observation in how people use them, what difficulties come up, and how what Norman and Crawford said is reflected there. I was thinking about this

Soooo…. I did something pretty amazing today! I tried out the Serial Communications lab (where the Arduino communicates with a program on the computer, in this case, Processing) and the input from the analog sensor (I used a force sensor)
