Fluto is a life-size colossal wind instrument. With Fluto, you can conduct an audio-visual symphony with others through your mobile device.
Mood Ring is an interactive mirror that illuminates based on your mood.
This post is a summary of the work and learnings from ITP’s Haptics class.
Our work ultimately culminated with a fake cat that ‘purrs’ if you stroke it from top to bottom.
This post is a summary of the work and learnings from ITP’s Soft Sensing class.
In addition to making the conductive pompoms seen above, In this class I:
- Sewed with a purpose for the first time in my life 👨🎓
- Used this new skill to learn how to make “soft” electrical circuits and sensors. ⚡️
I performed a 5-minute audio-visual piece at CultureHub for an audience of about 50 people. Here is a recording of it – the piece is called Big Dark Age.
The instant an Arduino or Raspberry Pi connects to the web (with a public IP) it is out there for anyone – or anything – to detect.
In our connected devices class, my classmates and I all saw this vulnerability firsthand. After leaving our connected thermostats on for a week, we experienced our devices being scanned and sometimes attacked by machines from across the globe.
The connected thermostat I was building earlier is now complete! 🌡🌡🌡
This thermostat works like a Nest Thermostat (though clearly not as pricey); collecting the current temperature and sending that information to an online server.
A thermostat appliance only needs to send a few bits/bytes of information to get its point across. It can also be used to send sensor information. In this case, a temperature sensor!
