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 […]

Final Project

For my final composite, I created a decoration to be placed somewhere in my family’s house. I made this decoration for my mother as she is very near and dear to my heart. I have not gotten her a gift in forever, so I decided making one would be better than buying something generic. This […]

Final Project- Cherry Neopixel Epoxy Multi-Lamp

Question 1:    For this project, I decided to push myself outside of my comfort zone and dive into a project I had seen created on YouTube using Epoxy resin and solid wood. The challenges in this project were the wood cutting, utilizing the router table, and pouring the Epoxy resin. I had never used […]

Final Project – Smart Carhole

Question 1:  My final project was to make a smart garage door controller so I could check if I had remembered to close the garage door, and if not, I could close it remotely.  A lot of the programming and development started with a setup like this: This was what allowed me to test my […]

Final Project – Charis Ryu

  Question 1 I made a cat(pet) house for my final project. First, I made a comfortable bed that goes inside the house with a blanket and sewing machine. Then, I made the house with baltic birch wood and power tools (Neil helped me with the tools).  The biggest challenge I faced was wood kerfing. […]

Daniel Shin – Final Project

Final Project For my final project, I decided to design a stylized room in 3D using a program called Blender. Then, I recreated the room in real life using most of the tools I have learned to use in this course. First, I made these two 3D models. The first one represents what each object […]

Final Project

For my final project, I made a real life Minecraft Redstone simulator. It includes lamps, redstone torches, and various redstone path blocks. When placed in the board according to Minecraft’s rules, the torch can power the lamp using the redstone as wires. Overall, I think it turned out well. I’m especially happy that I was […]

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

For the final project I chose to make a skirt for my mom. I chose to use linen for skirt so it was breathable in the summer, and I chose linen over cotton just so I wouldn’t have to add a slip layer if because most of the cotton fabrics were see through.  I found […]

Final Project: 7(+) Rings

Subtitle: this is all just for me, really. Also I’m writing this on a plane on limited sleep so I apologize if it’s a little unclear at points.   Question 1: (Sorry I know this wasn’t supposed to be a full write up but I ended up explaining a lot of it anyway). My final […]

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 […]
