Pop Matrix is a new kind of pop art. This device displays images on your tongue through a series of electrodes. Using sensory substitution, the device trains the user’s brain to translate tactile to visual information will begin to see the images displayed on their tongues.
This is the first prototype of the electric pop. The second phase is to run the code on it and *fingers crossed* hope it works. Craftmanship was done with patience, so there is hope!
The other issue is the rights to this work. Beta tank created a look and feel prototype for this device, the idea of this device belongs to Bach-Y-Rita, and Hoeken has open-sourced his hardware and software maps, which leaves me as an integrator. Measuring up all the cooks in this kitchen I am becoming a bit uneasy about following this project– suggestions?
Pictured above, a counterfeit Arduino
I'm a 15-minute walk from Canal Street, NYC, home of counterfeit everything. Men and women from around the world stand shoulder to shoulder shouting "Looyee-Vatton, DVD, Roll-Ex." Tourists flock to this location looking for a cheap deal on a knockoff purse or watch — some tourists think they're real, most just want a deal. When you build a brand that represents something of value, eventually you get knocked off.Wow! Society is moving in the right direction! People want to prototype micro controller projects so much, there is an opportunity for counterfeit merchandise! Hurray!!!

These glasses cover your eyes at the sight of any dangerous or enervating situation. They are especially useful at the movie theater, when presented with excruciating graphic scenes enough for covering one’s eyes. The glasses have a pulse sensor on an earring clipped to one of the lobes. When the sensor detects an exaltation in pulse servos on both sides of the glasses will close the curtains covering both eyes, and when the pulse reaches normality the curtains retrieve.
I have cleaned up my code and redesigned the pcb to a smaller more compact circuit. Tomorrow Joel Murphy will walk me through the pcb etching machine to print the board out. I am very happy about how it turned out. You can see an image here:
I have picked out the new fabric:
In order to finish Theater Safety Glasses 2 I will attend Rhino workshop on Saturday to print the part that encases the battery circuit and servos, and assemble the pieces tighter. Creating a circuit for it has been spending and I hope that creating a 3d file will be as rewarding and useful.
Known and Unknown Challenges:
The Theater Safety Glasses are an old idea that I am refurbishing to create a second version. The main intent is to take a good idea in the first prototype stage and take it further. To begin the Arduino board needs to be stripped from the circuit, therefore I began my technical implementation with creating a new circuit to be etched. An immense challenge was to configure all of the elements comfortably on to the glasses. I have found that I need to make a 3d-printed part for this project in order to incorporate the circuit, battery, servos and curtain.
KNOWN: battery is huge, first etching of pcb.
UNKOWN: 3d modeling, it’s not Christmas time… so it’s harder to find red velvet cloth : /
Easter Egg Experiences:
When thinking of how to recreate this project I found the new challenge of detaching from the previous image to make a new one. Unfortunately I have not been able to come up with a better look and feel, I am just making the electronics, the user experience, and the design tighter.
Rhino is free, and there are a ton of tutorials online.
I love designing pcbs.
Refurbishing Theater Safety Glasses
Fish-Out-Of-Water is a project that explores the mimicry of life with light and sound. I decided to use motors in order to create movement, and from the movement itself comes the sound. The fist iteration was done with a vibration motor. The second iteration was done with two servos, but there were lots of problems with keeping the cables out of their way. The movement, however, improved significantly.
This is my music box synthesizer. The concept was to miss-and-match, sounds depending on the buttons pressed and the combinations, and the potentiometer changes notes or delays depending on the button pressed.

The concept of the Safety Glasses project is inspired by the Joo Janta 200 Super-Chromatic Peril Sensitive Sunglasses of tThe Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. These glasses turned completely black at the sight of any danger, to give a relaxed attitude when presented with an alarming situation.
I made a pair of glasses that cover your eyes when you are scared or nervous. These would be specially useful at the movie theater, where some graphic scenes are excruciating enough for covering your eyes. The glasses would have the pulse sensor on an earring clipped to one of the lobes. When the sensor detects an exaltation in pulse servos on both sides of the glasses will close the curtains covering both eyes. The arduino board and two demo buttons are housed in a small plastic box that fits in your pocket.
This is the improved version of the toy searching for the right channel. This is a clever way for optimizing the amount of animations a lol shield can exhibit, by making some of the led points switches. I painted it white because it matched the Mac remote I was using. Also, I added 3 other animations, CNN, a porn channel, the previous Discovery, and an alien channel. I failed to find the alien channel myself falling as a victim of my own architecture!
While trying to decipher how to bypass a manual switch with a digital gate, I found transistors to be helpful, but for the sound recorder itself.First I tried to switch an LED on/off. Here is a photo of the LED circuit.Then I tried to replace the play/ record switch in the sound recorder with two transistors, with this schematic:But I had no luck!This was the code I used:You will need the library
