What?! Talking to an electrical engineer for this? That’s right, we mean serious business. Meet our EE friend Eddie! He’s been our consultant for all of our physical computing needs. He gave us plenty of great advice on how to execute our idea!
With the little shield and breadboard. Requires 8-32V power supply so we used a battery, but we could connect to a power strip at later date!
Our first prototypes are working! We have two main mechanical parts to our project:
- A motor to suspend spheres from for our data display at Imagine RIT.
- A button to collect data with at our happiness kiosks.
Feast your eyes on these beautiful videos of the prototypes.
The first step in our process is getting a working prototype of our happiness kiosks. We need a device that 1) takes input from a user and 2) records that input.
Our handymen Tim and Dan have been working at getting that working prototype up and running.
