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 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 have Phillips Hue at home, so using the nice instructions from ITP Light & Interactivity I was able to connect to my home’s hue setup as a developer. Here is a snapshot of my home’s current setup (collected through a GET request after connected):
Creating the physical enclosure for the CRYP0MANIA crystal was a project in and of itself. This post is about the crystals physical details.
Lets call it CRYPT0MANIA – the connected crystal.
This post is about the crystals digital details – because it works – it really works!
Happy birthday to my sweet dear girlfriend Francesca. I made her this heart mirror as a thank you for putting up with all of my nonsense.
This week I converted a concept into a partial reality.
The target for the first prototype of the enclosure was to create one half of the enclosure, in order to test different LEDs in am environment that resembles its final form.
As the technical feasibility of the API to LED project comes together, it is time to consider the physical specifications, including design, construction, and materials. Here is the current conceptual design:
I like working with the shotgun microphone during Sound & Video projects. It is useful because it records mostly in one direction, and has a bit of length to it, so you don’t have to get close to the source of the sound. It records mostly these areas:
For me, the shotgun microphone really fun to hold and point in various directions …and served as inspiration for the totally tubular
