Final Project

We managed to make our plant turn after a countless experiments. We used a lasy susan and mounted our plant on a circular acrylic sheet. We also used…

Eco Exchange Experiements

This is how we envision our entire We’re working with this MG-811 sensor module, since this seemed to be one of the least expensive CO2 sensors available, and since…

Next phase of the project!

What if the plants became as greedy as humans?  A coin-operated responsive plant that rotates to acknowledge human presence and a visualization of the CO2 in its environment,…

Beyond scarcity Hackathon! Alley pond

The Beyond scarcity hackathon was an interesting mid opener to explore various directions for our final pcomp project. There were three main themes to the beyond scarcity hackathon:…

Final Project – Concept & Playtesting

For my Pcomp final project Jasmine and I are planning to work together and conceptualised on the responsive smart plant concept.  We decided to emphasise on mutualism ..interaction between the…

Initial Ideas for Pcomp Final Project!

I had three different scenarios in my mind which had certain problems/concerns which I would like to attempt to solve through physical computing. The first scenario was getting trapped…

Midterm : Mastermind

For the midterm project me and my project partner Dimos decided to recreate the board game Mastermind .Mastermind is a code-breaking game for two players.One player becomes the codemaker,…

Lab: Intro to Asynchronous Serial Communications

ACII vs. Binary Sending values to all 3 sensors Send the data in many formats

Pcomp + ICM synthesis

The focus for the ICM and Pcomp synthesis was designing a physical variable. Combining ICM and Arduino was really exciting! First we tried out the analog series example…

Lab: Servo Motor Control and Tone output using Arduino

In this lab, I controlled the servomotor’s position using the value returned from an analog sensor.The servo motors were turning 180 degrees clockwise and anti-clockwise. Tone Lab : This…
