Victor and Hilal, photo resistor prototype 1

For our photo resistor device we decided to make two stoners who smoke different kinds of weeds, one GOOD weed, one BAD weed.

Ours stoners would communicate how high they are by reflecting their state of mind in music.

My part of the project was to design the BAD weed smoker.

1) Explain the code in a nutshell: logic, important parts:

The code was written so that it the stoner will get high as he smokes more weed. Lighting up the joint would intuitively establishes this. The stoner is always in a state of being moderately high, cause he smokes all the time. When he sobers up he would feel at the lowest level of his emotions, apathetic to world almost.

To create the illusion of life, meaning life happens gradually, introduced the component of time into our code. To switch from the last state of emotion(blitzed) to the state of no emotion(sleep), the user has to generate the last state for a period of time(2 seconds) in order for it to finalize the program.

This was originally planned to be applied to switch each state of emotion to the next one, hopefully this will be accomplished in the next iteration.

2)what did you do that you feel is new, non obvious and useful.

We felt that using the light sensor to create an analogy of a lighter, even though was obvious, it was innovative. I am not sure if anyone has tried to do it before. In any case this actually made the interaction better because of affordances, how would a user possibly interact with a smoker if he/she is given a lighter?

It is a useful design to create entertainment.

We hope to refine the code and the prototype further.
