Final Project: Slide Puzzle

For my final project I made a slide puzzle utilizing my own artwork. The inspiration for it was that I wanted to meld my love for both games and art into one project and the slide puzzle to me felt like a good mix of those two interests. Question 1:             The first thing I […]

Pom Bots!

Initial Idea: My initial idea was to make a caterpillar like bot that moves by rapidly shaking back and forth. The design can be seen below. In terms of materials I wanted to use pipe cleaners for the bottom so it could grip onto the table and move. Then I would use paper, popsicle sticks and […]

Arduino Introduction Assignment

At the beginning of the assignment I wanted to make some kind of arduino using a motor as the output. My first idea that I wanted to try was using a touch sensor to control the speed of the motor. This theoretically would allow you to change the speed of the motor based on how […]

Textiles Assignment

Motivation: So my initial motivation for choosing my textile was it’s simplicity since I’m not very comfortable with textiles in general. Additionally I have a dog of my own so the shiba cube plushie was a pretty perfect fit as it was rather simple, while also connecting to something I care about.   Build Process: The […]

Mikey Dentino Copper Tape Assignment

Inspiration: My inspiration for this project was once again video games. I decided to base my design around the famous quote from Legend of Zelda “It is dangerous to go alone, take this”.

Mikey Dentino Laser Name Tag

Motivation: My primary motivation for the design of my name tag was that I wanted to reflect my love for video games. Because of this I thought what better character to use than Kirby, which was the first game series I ever played. Build Process: I got my initial concept pretty quickly, so I first went into ClipStudioPaint (An art program I regularly use) and made the following image. After I created this outline I went into Inkscape to format it for the laser cutter. I ran into a couple issues while doing this, because initially what […]
