Assignment,Description — Ali Momeni @ 11:01 pm

Please be prepared to give a 20-seconds/20-slides presentation on your plans for the final project:

  • Prepare a Google Presentation or Prezi to give us a clear sense of your conceptual intentions and technical plans for the project
  • Include the following in your presentation: concept overview (text), technical plan (diagrams, sketches, photos), inspiration (links, images, artists), foreseen difficulties (technical, conceptual)
  • Bring your collection of objects to show and discuss

  • Post your response as a three paragraph comment on this post; if referring to the text, please note the page numbers

Stephanie assignment 2

DUE Mon Mar 28, 2012

Please prepare a system using Max, a Teensy microcontroller, and the necessary components that performs the following:

  • A photocell controlling the position of a servo that rotates a small figure (e.g. a toy figure or animal, a fruit, a plant, a hairball, a sea urchin, etc)
  • Another photocell controlling the brightness of an incandescent light-bulb that create an animated shadow; for this you must find a way to arrange and fix in space: the light bulb, the object casting a shadow, and the screen onto which the shadow is cast
  • Another photocell controlling the speed at which a solenoid hits against some doohickey that makes sound, i.e.  your musical score. For this you must find a way to fix a solenoid in the upright position, so that after it strikes the doohickey bounces back down to its relaxed position

Additional credit give for:

  • Using any sensor besides a photocell
  • Creating a meaningful interaction among the three actors: the figure, the light, the sound

DUE Mar 28, 2012: twinkling LEDs and a sensor

Assignment,Description,Max,Techniques — Ali Momeni @ 10:35 pm
  • Make a circuit that allows you to connect four or more LEDs to a Teensy microcontroller on a breadboard
  • Make a circuit that allows you to connect one or more photocells/photoresistors to a Teensy microcontroller on the same breadboard
  • Create a Max patch that allows you to sequence the twinkling of the LEDs, in correspondence with the incoming sensor values from the photocell/photoresistor

I’ve uploaded the two Max patches from class today; feel free to use them, or parts of them to help you complete the assignment.
