    Final Project proposals 

    1) My first choice for my final project would be to finally finish a project I have been working on for a while. Last semester I made a lighting project where a series of LEDs were embedded into a set of wall sconces and controlled by a wireless physical controller. The idea is that the wall sconces can display candle light without having to go through the trouble of lighting and blowing out candles. But since there is already electronics in them, why not add data to the display. I intended for the lights to display the weather but I was never able to add a wifi connection to allow them to show real weather data. I would like to finally finish this project! Below are photos of what it looks like.

    Role and Look/Feel Prototype for Final 

    I want to make a series of dirty little robots for the final.

    They are constructed of metal scrap found on the city streets, old record covers, and electronic components.
    Their role is to sort out human thoughts in a robotish way, bring quirky little joy to the overloaded human minds
    of city people. In this kind of manifestation the negative stuff of your overloaded mind is gone.

    How it works:

    You open the app and type words about what’s in your troubled mind.
    As soon as you click “that’s it”, all the little robots move into action as a
    composition to interoperate/translate your words…some blink, some
    walk, some roll, some make noise, bla bla bla…… What the robots
    actually do is XXXXXX. The time they do it depends on the length of
    the words you typed.

    Why I chose the material that I chose: 

    1. Worn out stuff has a natural soothing function.
    It has solid psychological background.

    2. Metal scrap comes from the New York City streets.
    If the dirty little robots bring you positive feelings, it’s
    like the tension/anxiety/worries of you brought by
    New York City can also be cured by New York City.
    How romantic.

    3. Old record covers has a very long history/memory
    of music and the people who loved them.
    How romantic.

    Role Prototype Ideas 


    I have been thinking about a few different things I would like to do for the final assignment, but I have not been able to narrow it down to one just yet.


    My first idea is to have a remote control car with a camera strapped on it like a drone that I can control using my phone. There will be four servos, one continuous servo for each wheel and two to move the camera up and down and side to side.




    My next idea is to make an LED matrix, possibly 10×10 that is controllable by my iPhone. I would be able to draw the pixels on my screen and see the direct translation onto the matrix.



    I have also been considering the possibility of purchasing a toy, like a teddy ruxpin or a furby and taking it apart to make my own toy from it that would be controlled through my phone.



    Or maybe make a hexapod like this one I found that has really nice motion when it walks.




    and lastly I have been considering making some sort of robot that I can wake up and control its head and eyes and some other features.

    I still am not sure which direction I want to go but these are all things that I have been considering so far.

    Role Prototype 

    To illustrate a ‘role’ prototype for my thesis (and the project for this class) I’ve been working on a video that shows an intrepid hero using the TOTAbot (Toys of the Apocalypse bot) to scan for motion, scavenge, test for radioactivity, and fend off zombie attacks. I’m still working on the final edit, so here’s a snippet of the beginning.

    Midterm Prototype 

    It’s not stable, because I left the upper side open…
    What do we do with the noise of the servos…

    The Waiting Hand, a physical representation of the time we spend waiting, and a tool that can be used and carried with us around the home while we run errands, waiting for our files to download before we are signaled to return to use our computers.
