Arduino Iteration Adventures

My iteration project was built as a stepping-stone from my newly-acquired Arduino skills to my final project. To do so, I built a box with a map of my local area on the front, and a number of LEDs that lit up at 13 different bus stop locations to indicate where certain buses where. before […]

Iteration Assignment

For my iteration assignment I decided to revisit the arduino Input/Output project. Previously I had used a current sensor to measure the current through an LED to determine the right resistor needed for a particular brightness. I had used these sensors in the past, so I wanted to try a project with a sensor I […]

Iteration Project: Papercut Lightbox

For this iteration project, I wanted to redo my papercut lightbox from Assignment 3: Paper Circuits. The first project can be found here: The final product wasn’t too bad, but there were definitely some issues and snags I would’ve liked to have done better. Some of these included: I originally attempted to put layers of […]

iteration project – Justin Franklin

Iteration Project – Justin Franklin In the makerspace class this week we were directed to go back and redo a project in a new way, or improve upon it somehow. I thought about this for a little while, because I didn’t know what I wanted to do at first. I decided to go back and […]

Christian Amato Iteration Assignment

For this assignment, I was inspired by Emilie’s idea that she was going to make a lit-up acrylic sign in layers using neo-pixels and a 3D base. I decided I wanted to go one step further and add an ultrasonic sensor to the front of the base to light up the sign based upon the […]

Daniel Shin – Assignment 8: Iteration

For the iteration project, I decided to iterate upon the sculpture I made on the 3d printing session. Some difficulties I had with the 3d printing project was that it was difficult to salvage all the small details from a complicated object. Therefore, I decided to simplify the 3d printed object and combine it with […]

Iteration Project

Planning I decided to iterate my pombot from last week. I had made a skiing robot that pushed itself along on fork ski poles: My plan for iteration had two parts. First, I wanted to add an ultrasonic sensor. The whole point of the robot is locomotion, which it can’t do if there is a […]


For my iteration project, I decided to improve my final design from our 3-D printing assignment. The design was a bathroom organizer for my friend and I. Since I did not have a large budget, I cut the project short. It was not scaled the way I wanted it to be, nor was it sturdy […]

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 […]

Assignment 8

For this assignment, our task was to revisit a past assignment and make changes that utilize multiple technologies. In class I saw Duncan’s pillow and thought this was pretty cool. So I decided to make a nametag pillow using sewing. Initially I decided to embroider my name, but I wanted to learn how to screenprint […]

Iteration Assignment

This assignment was all about improving and building upon one or two of our previous assignments we did for this semester. I decided to combine the laser cutting and copper tape circuit projects by creating a wood cut-out of a cat with glowing LEDs for eyes. Below are the laser cut and copper tape circuit […]
