The walker

22-Feb-09 | 5,475 views

I played with noise and probability to see what I can get out of the “walker” example for The Nature of Code class. 4 parameters were set up to control my walker group and somehow I’m getting this flies around food / bugs around lamp effect. Parameters: Acceleration of the particle Attraction from the anchor […]

Magnetic Tracer

At week 1 of toy design class, I grouped with Emeri, Elie and EJ and quick prototyped a drawing toy over the weekend. After ruling out a lot of other possibilities of making a drawing toy like miniature catapult loaded with chalk powder or rolling marbles spitting ink, we came back to the idea of […]

Designing a light switch

Light switches are so common that we’ve build unconscious paradigm in them. They are either binary or look like a knob. I was trying not to break the paradigm just to break the paradigm, nor to introduce extra circuits/mechanisms just for the form. That being said, I was trying carefully to address a certain problem […]

It’s pretty much basic (well, lame even under my standard) but featuring the FFT and BeatDetect interface in minim library. I played around with the functions the FFT […]

Sunny afternoon, fair breeze, september 11th, perfect day to hang out. However I was going alone so I tried hard to make myself look like a tourist. I do like the idea of the waterfall in urban area, but I did expect it to be more surrealistic.    The scaffolding of the waterfall looks weak given the […]

Digital I/O with Arduino

10-Sep-08 | 7,225 views

I bought my first Arduino boards in 2007 and never touched them again ever since setting up the famous “blinking LED” code sample. It does recall some memory when I have my hands on the chips and boards and wires and stuff… again. The Arduino I have is an old NG(Nuova Generazione) rev C, which […]
