DUE Feb 13, 2012 – Sensors to actuators, and “the stage”

Assignment — Ali Momeni @ 8:50 pm

  • Sketches for “the stage” for your final project; the stage should help you fasten your components (motors/lights) and present your collected miniature objects.  Be prepared to share drawings, sketches, descriptions and reference images for how you will go about designing and making a “stage”.  Each student will be expected to give a 5 minute presentation on their research/ideas for how and why the objects she has collected will be displayed and animated.
