Hello everyone! After working in this project for a month, I must say that my expectations where very high and communication between Processing and Arduino is much more complex than I thought! But I can not complain about the process and all that I learned, and the outcome was actually very nice. My intention with […]
Collection of patterns Patterns are created by hand movement and accelerometer. Each time development of the patterns is different, because you never move your body twice the same way. Processing code for creating this patterns import processing.serial.*; float sensorX=0; float sensorY =0; float sensorZ =0; float x; float y; float z; float […]
For my new prototype, I designed internals, that slide into the tube and hold the electronics in place. I made them in the workshop from MDF. Although my new prototype also serves as a visual model, these internals are not primarily designed to exactly fit the prototypes electronics and do not necessarily represent the internals […]
WIRELESS CONNECTION I connected Bluetooth Silver Module with right angle female header 6 pins. On LilyPad simple board bluetooth pin needs to be connected to +. Because added battery to the board bluetooth pins are not charged by the board. LilyPad simple board Bluetooth module connected with the LilyPad board Connect LilyPad board […]
MORE DRAWING APPLICATION I was exploring drawing (processing code) with accelerometer: 1 – DRAWING PATTERNS WITH ELLIPSES ellipse_ The size of ellipses is changing accordingly to speed of body motion. With fast motion ellipses are bigger and cover hole canvas – they are applying new canvas for drawing (some kind of “reset”) […]
GYROSCOPE Gyro L3G4200D detects or measure rotation on 3 axis: x, y and z. It has three selectable scales: 250 , 500 or 2000 deg/sec. Gyros are not affected by gravity (like accelerometers) and can give you exact information how object is orientated. Gyros and accelerometers are often used together because of great complement to […]
As it turned out re – exchanging those buttons for PIRs was a lot more complicated then expexted. When I simply plugged in the sensors, they didn’t work properly. After a lot of testing I figured, that at least two of the eLab’s three PIRs appeared to be broken. I ordered new ones from Tinkersoup, […]
To recreate a sensor using textiles, I recreated a knit pressure sensor. I knitted a little rectangle, connected it with crocodile clips to the breadboard and using Arduino and an LED created a presure sensor. knit pressuresensor from Jessica Snidersich on Vimeo.
