Interactive Pages

Interactive Pages

Happy book day! The concept is an interactive book with hidden messages, the idea is that when you press certain pages (with a capacitive sensor) you unveil the secret messages in the book. Materials Used – Semi-glossy paper with a laser printed pattern – Conductive threat – Velostat – Clear tape Resistance of threat – [...]

Fuzzy Lamp

Fuzzy Lamp

Experimenting with capacitive sensing and controlling an RGB LED Two things I had not done before, but was very interested in. The other thing I was really interested in was using materials that are not common for the use of an object. In this case the lampshade was covered by a synthetic fur like material. [...]

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kineticcreatures/kinetic-creatures I have a current interest in doing things with motion. I came across Theo Jansen’s Strandbeests and they are huge amazing structures that move with external forces like wind. He developed this structure that simulates a very realistic and natural walking motion. I want to take that motion and create a character that reacts [...]

Week 4 – Sensor

I made a pressure sensor with two pieces of a metal mesh, and a piece of velostat, separated by layers of foam with holes in them. The container of the sensor is a glove. Ideally, if it’s for a video game controller, each finger will have a flex sensor to control different movements and the [...]

Week 3 – In class switch + Paper switch

In class switch by Samir It was a really simple but brilliant way of using the metal from the wheel structure as part of the circuit. And just by using small bumps, he closed the circuit by making the LED leg touch the metal. I immediately though of the Heely’s shoes and combining them with [...]

Week 2

Mehndi Inspired Parallel Circuit The switch is inspired by the Jnana Mudra, a yoga hand position where you join the index and thumb and leave the rest extended. I ended up using two 3V batteries because it wouldn’t light up with just one. The Bare conductive ink even though it’s elastic, it’s not made for [...]

Hello again World

Hello again World

I’m Jeannette. I’m an architect from Venezuela. 25. I wanted to expand my knowledge in technology, specifically in interactivity. Last semester I discovered PComp and I loved it. I’m hoping to combine the other two classes I have with this one (Wireless Toys and Digital Fabrication). And I want to experiment with interactive installations (I’m [...]
