## Midterm Idea & Process

For my midterm project, I would like to create a simple circuit without Arduino. I will make a simple lamp with soft circuit that operates with 3v batteries. My idea for midterm comes from my hobby and interest. Baseball is my favorite sports since I was young, and I often go to baseball stadium to…

## Capacitive Sensor

Light brightens when pressure is applied, fades when pressure is released. Blinks back to bright when pressed.

## Capacitive Sensors

For this assignment I worked with Bear Conductive ink and copper tape (also copper textile) to create two versions of capactive sensors. Bear ink took at least 6 coats to work when mixed with water. I followed two tutorials for this: http://www.bareconductive.com/capacitance-sensor

## Midterm Assignment (due 10/15)

Create a lamp using the set of tools (materials and processes) we have used over the course of the semester. I want to see you push yourselves both conceptually and on your use of materials. The design can be simple, but I want to see real thought behind all of the decisions you make. Constraints:…

## Week 6: Microcontroller WS Part 2 Slides + Assignment

You can download here. CapSense Sketch: CapacitiveSensorSketch_LED Here is the code for this class. Here is the CapSenseLibrary. And finally, here is your assignment: 1) Make two capacitive sensors. Have one turn on an LED and one make some noise. 2) Come prepared to present your midterm concept. You should bring any inspiration, prototypes, drawings,…

## HMW 4 – first arduino connection

For this project how was thinking of “surprise” and immediately thought of a camera for toddlers to interact with. I really wanted to learn how to work with felt, so it was my first experience working with the material and found it incredibly soothing! I enjoyed working this material and the conductive thread was amazing…

## HMW 3 – building sensors

Making sensors with materials in class

## HMW 2 – paper puppet

For this assignment I decided to create out of paper a puppet that could lid up. The circuit completes itself when the dragon closes his mouth, allowing for the cooper tape to make contact with the battery, hence completing the circuit.
