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 […]

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 – Grant Johnson

Q1: For my final project I decided to construct a Bluetooth speaker. Some challenges I faced during this project include: Part shopping for the proper parts that would all work together and create a decent sound. Learning how to solder and using it to help add security to the internal wiring of the speaker. Figuring […]

Final Project: Smart Trash Picker

Where’s The Report? (It’s In an Attached PDF) My final project was on a “Smart Trash Picker,” and I have a short slide-deck explaining what that is, and you can view it here Fully built Smart Trash Picker   I wrote up my final report within a Google Doc, and aligning the images in that […]

Textiles – Grant Johnson

During these weeks in lab we worked with textiles, sewing, and embroidery. I happened to also be in a fashion class this semester, so I was excited to get the opportunity to learn some new things that could add to my clothing construction repertoire. I’ve also never been around embroidery machines before, so that was […]

Final Project

Question 1: For the final project, I created a press-fit constellations box powered by wireless inductive coils. Initially, I intended for the box to be powered by a solar panel circuit. But along the way I ran into some revelations and restrictions that led me to replace the intended solar panel circuit for a wireless […]

Final Project – Programmable Keypad – Mohammed Faiz Patangia

For my Final Project, I worked on making a programmable keypad. I idea behind this keypad is that it could be used for multiple purposes, like data entry, coding, gaming, etc. To build it, I needed several tools and materials, like Adafruit Its Bitsy, sottering tools, wood, wires, mechanical switched, keycaps, etc. Through out the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Iteration Assignment – Grant Johnson

For this assignment I decided to take a whack at combining what I learned from the name tag assignment and the Arduino assignments and create a little ‘light show machine’. The plan for this creation is to combine more complex woodcut patterns with motors, LEDs, and an Arduino to make an object that spins the […]

Iteration Assignment Project – David He

Motivation and Initial Designs: Looking at the Original I decided to revisit my Copper Tape project since I had a bit of trouble originally completing the structure and getting the circuit to work, as the copper tape is very difficult to get working in series due to limited voltage. link to the original project video […]

Iteration Project

When thinking of ideas for this project, I wanted to incorporate sewing or embroidery since I really enjoyed those weeks earlier in the semester. To step up my previous work a bit, I decided to use sewable LEDs. My final work is really a combination of a couple of previous projects. Originally, I was planning […]
