Digital Tinkering – two toggles and a piezo

This mini project is a step further in the right direction, each of the toggles turns on a the piezo.¬†I want the circuit to remain closed when the user has pushed the button therefore I will need to use¬†maintained switches. This means it will stay in one state until actuated into a new one and... Continue Reading →

Digital Tinkering – Basic midi (buttons & piezo)

For the exhibition I want to create a small midi-controller to help demonstrate how the switch may work. For this I have used 8 button switches and a piezo. As the user presses each button the piezo plays a sound. The switch interrupts the flow if electricity, breaking the circuit when it is open. When... Continue Reading →

Arduino, MaxMSP & Modul8

This diagram illustrates how the project could potentially work. Arduino is a micro controller used for prototyping and will be used to control the toggle. MaxMSP is a visual programming environment used for multi-media and music, it will act as the interface between Arduino and Modul8. The user controls the visual / audio parameters by...

Experimentation – Getting to know MadMapper

MadMapper is a projection mapping software and works seamlessly alongside Modul8 to create really interesting compositions. At this stage I'm not sure what I want to create so it's really important for me to experiment with an array of different softwares. I initially downloaded the demo version of MadMapper but, with this version there are... Continue Reading →

Experimentation – Modul8 continued…

In my previous blog post 'Experimentation - Modul8' I began to experiment with Modul8 paying particular interest in the paint and animate module. I concluded that whilst I liked the affects the content was very boring and didn't illustrate social anxiety disorder. I decided to use my second testimony taken from Claire Eastham to illustrate...

Digital Tinkering – H-bridge

This week I have been looking at interesting ways for the users to interact with the videos. In the Arduino projects book, one example is a Zoetrope. Before, the first moving images were invented they used a tool called the Zoetrope. It created the illusion of motion. The original designs were spun with a cranking... Continue Reading →

Digital Tinkering – CapacitiveSensor

This week I have been working on concept developments, and even though I have not chosen a concept to develop further I shall exploring the different way's I can bring those interactive elements to life. The concept " " has a element that can be replicated by using a CapacitiveSensor in it's simplest form to... Continue Reading →

Digital Tinkering – Piezo

Project 04 This week I have followed another activity from the Arduino Projects Book. This project utilises a photoresistor that will be used to detect the amount of light across its surface, by moving a finger across the light will change the voltage on the analog pin and which determines what frequency the piezo plays....
