Final Project, Justin Franklin

For the maker space final project, I knew sort of what I wanted to do. Earlier in the semester I had made a theremin like device, that used ultrasonic sensors to produce different pitches. I wanted to rework that idea into something that was a bit more useable by incorporating that functionality into a midi […]

Arduino Bots – Scott Kim

For the in-class assignment, I thought a hatchet + log would be a cute and simple thing to create.  Using some cardstock and gray/black sharpies, I managed make a fairly accurate hatchet and a brown log. Then, I glued the log onto a large popsicle stick as well as the servo and hatchet. It was […]

Iteration Assignment

Original Work I created a very poor implementation of a circuit design that I was very proud of. In the below video, I discuss issues with the quality of my implementation – poorly secured battery, and a poor work-around to prevent the battery from draining, and poor connections between components. Iteration Project I wanted to […]

Iteration Project: Make-a-thon Participation

During the week of the Iteration assignment, I opted participating in the Make-a-Thon. My team was named “MOVI” and the goal was to design a protective guard for a prosthetic leg. Prosthetic legs are very sophisticated and are extremely valuable. Yet those products are worn at the part of our body with the most movement […]

Final Project: PiCrawler

PiCrawler is my final project for this course. It is a voice-controlled robot that can move in all directions on the ground.  The robot integrated a Raspberry Pi (as the master for control), an Arduino (as the slave managing servo actions), and a mechanical base with two panels of “legs”. An offline speech recognition module […]

Final Project Reflection

For my final project, I was inspired by a pokéball-themed Nintendo Switch cartridge case that I found on YouTube.  My initial idea was to make six pokéballs and case/stand based on the recovery machine in pokémon centers. After considering the amount of time needed to complete the project, I cut the number of pokéballs to […]

Arduino Jacket – Final Project

Question 1 I integrated a computer into my jacket, so that I could play a game on my jacket sleeve! I used an Adafruit Flora as the computer that controlled the game, and I used sewable circuitry – particularly conductive thread, sewable LEDs and conductive fabric as the inputs and outputs of my game. A […]

Final Project

Question 1: Show us what you made for your final project.  Include at least two in-process photos and two final photos (or videos!) of your final project. Include a couple sentences about what challenges you faced and what you are most proud of but do not write a full step-by-step report of what you did. […]

Final Project: MIDI Controller – Arun Abraham

Question 1: For my final project, I sought to create a Piano MIDI controller that I could potentially use with a DAW (digital audio workstation) when producing/recording music for myself in the future. MIDI controllers are typically somewhat pricey, so I thought this would be a cool alternative.               […]

Final Project – Motion Sensor Solar Powered Desk Lamp

Question 1: For this final project, I made a solar powered motion sensor desk lamp controlled by Arduino. The lamp is made by cutting a block of wood into three pieces. Two of the longer blocks are for the stand which is connected to the other block for the head with a screw, winged bolt, […]

Jacob Pruiett Final Project

For my final project, I created a board game: Radical Robots! The main idea behind the board game was to create a game that caused players to need to make a lot of decisions and estimations of the odds to succeed. For this game I needed a large board, a number of tokens, trackers, and […]
