    Ira – Prototyping 

    I spent a LOT of time trying to solve the code and the hardware issues.
    Eventually, for the latest prototype I used the code and the hardware connections that I made before (with a few improvements).

    Sketches

    Some of the code exp. that I was working on:

    ***************************************************
    ***************************************************
    // Made with Pablo Ripollés
    ***************************************************

    /* sheep
     */

    int inPin = 7;         // the number of the input pin
    int outPin = 13;       // the number of the output pin

    int state = HIGH;      // the current state of the output pin
    int reading;           // the current reading from the input pin
    int previous = LOW;    // the previous reading from the input pin

    // the follow variables are long’s because the time, measured in miliseconds,
    // will quickly become a bigger number than can be stored in an int.
    long time = 0;         // the last time the output pin was toggled
    long debounce = 200;   // the debounce time, increase if the output flickers

    void setup()
    {
      pinMode(inPin, INPUT);
      pinMode(outPin, OUTPUT);
    }

    void loop()
    {
      b1Reading = digitalRead(b1Pin);
      b2Reading = digitalRead(b2Pin);
      b3Reading = digitalRead(b3Pin);

      // if we just pressed the button (i.e. the input went from LOW to HIGH),
      // and we’ve waited long enough since the last press to ignore any noise… 
      if (b1Reading == HIGH && lastb1Reading == LOW && millis() – time > debounce)
      {
        alpha = HIGH;
        // … and remember when the last button press was
        time = millis();   
      }

      if (b2Reading == HIGH && lastb2Reading == LOW && millis() – time > debounce)
      {
        alpha = LOW;
        beta = HIGH;
        // … and remember when the last button press was
        time = millis();   
      }

      if (b3Reading == HIGH && lastb3Reading == LOW && millis() – time > debounce)
      {
        alpha = LOW;
        beta = LOW;
        // … and remember when the last button press was
        time = millis();   
      }

      if (alpha == HIGH)

      else if (alpha == LOW)

      }

      lastb1Reading = b1Reading;

    Myriam – Storyboards and Candles prototypes 

    My arrow is almost done, and it seemed unuseful to do it bigger for now. We can already see how it would look like by lookiing at the small one, and anyway my concept wouldn't be better if it was big or small.

    Having this idea of "modern candles" a few weeks ago, I decided to start building my candles sculpture to check if my concept would work or not.

    The candles scultpure are a unique design, it is different everytime, and there wouldn't be a lot of it if it goes on the market. Some will be big, some small, and the candles melted would of course never be the same. Candles is a piece you put on the table of your living room, dining table, on your chimney, to give a special atmosphere and life to your space.

    I wanted the candles to be all white, to add a sense of purity. The main idea is the end of the candles and the beginning of the Leds growing in the wax, it is a frozen time piece when the organic meets technology, it is the pure confrontation of tradition and modernity, the representation of human versus machine.

    I started by looking if the Leds wouldn't melt or be too heated under the wax, and to see how the effect would be. I tried with an orange Leds, then with all the colors, then white.

    _G105699
     

    I didn't like the colored Leds. Their effect didn't match my expectations so I decided to stick on the  white ones. I enjoyed how the Leds were glowing under the wax.
    Then, I started with candles I bought, large ones. I wanted my piece to be long and and I wanted to test it on different materials and heights, so I melted my candles on a transparent piece of plastic to be able to put it later on anything I decided. 
    The process of melting them was long, and the wax started to be more and more grey and black. I don't know if it was because I tried to do it faster or because the wax was bad quality.
    The candles melting looked nice, but the wax on the bottom looked like snow after three days, all brown and dull.

    _G105701  _G105702 

    I didn't like the candles themselves as well, they were to large, making the flame dig a whole at the center and not melting nicely.

    I needed long and thin candles, such as church candles, that would add more spirituality to my piece, As well, I decided to melt them on a black material, to have to white wax appear more vivid.

    Organic Sea Lite 

    My objective for the second to last Passage of Time Prototype was to clearly demonstrate the physicality as well as the look & feel of the Sea Lite. Ultimately (by the end of the semester), I would like to make the Sea Lite out of plexi glass. I like the look of the velum but the end result feels flimsy and it was quite difficult to work with. Also, the Arduino and breadboard would have more support within a plexi glass container. After working on this prototype, I decided that I'm not loving the multi colored paper strips lying on the bottom. For Friday's "finished" prototype, I may decided to remove the colored paper and use plastic wrap to give the Arduino and breadboard support. For Friday's "final" prototype I'd like to focus more on the implementation – particularly the code.

    Twitlite 

    Roles

    Twitlite is a cube that can be used in 2 ways:

    1. A morse code messaging tool:
    Users can use Twitlite to interpret their twitter feeds in morse code.

    Scenario1

    2. Mood light:
    Users can place Twitlite in the living room, or any
    other room, and let their twitter feed, or any other feed, augment the
    ambience of the room.

    Scenario2

    Look and Feel

    Twitlite is a white 4x4x4 cube with soft light emitted from the inside. The Arduino and tri color LED are mounted on the inside. Twitlite can be connected to the computer for internet usage and reprogramming using a USB, or to a power source using and adaptor.

    Photo 2

    Implementation

    A python program is used to parse the twitter feed. You can change the credentials to use your own twitter feed. The python program parses and sends serial data to the Arduino program which interprets the received binary data, translates that into characters and processes it in the form of morse code. The color of Twitlite changes for each dot or dash with appropriate pauses between dots, dashes and letters.

    Prototype Layouts 

    The following diagram displays all of the correct dimensions and layout for the final prototype.

    FinalSchematic

    This is a potential placement and the desired look for the final prototype, white buttons and dark wood, trying to class it up.

    Location 
    So far I have begun adding the assets that will be concealed by the wood. I have also completed code for detecting button presses and for lighting the leds with pwm. The next step is to combine the code and have it working in conjunction.
