    “‘Appointment With Death/aka Working Title” 

    Look and Feel Prototype is pretty much complete:  I built my house today.  Though I don’t want to spend too much type on “Look and Feel,” I want to give the house an exterior of photos/or a dark/goth wallpaper.

    Circuitry is next.

    I have been working on the code but have yet to get it implementing.  Further work with if/else statements will have to be worked on.


    1. Led to blink (at at frequency in each room noting tension), then once the attic level is hit — below happens:

    Two servo motors in the attic with rotary blades/fans will be encased in the attic in a box with shards of glass.  This willl give the effect of a “happening” once the blades spin in glass:  i.e. windows breaking, violence occurring.

    Midterm Project 

    I choose to originally to do some sort of exercise ball that you would have to orient to various LEDs to the beat of your heart. That didn’t really seem to fit with the Pulse Sensor very well so I changed it, but kept the same components.

    I’ve always been awful at anything requiring balance, so I thought I would make some that could help a beginner exercise the muscles involved in balancing. This prototype just shows the LEDs marking your angle relative to the ground. A few of the practices you can do are walking backwards and forwards while trying to keep only one LED lit, or walking backwards and forwards while trying to smoothly go through all of the LEDs. Tightrope walking also needs to have a level of relaxation, so the pulse sensor will be included once I get another board, to help you slow down and practice calmly moving through the exercise.
