Smubbles for Gogbot!

10/04/2013

Previously i’ve updated about using an old keyboard for buttons of a piano. This was for a bigger project that was meant to be displayed at Gogbot, and after some of the usual trouble. We got it there, we broke it down and we rebuild it. One day down, but three days of succesfull exhibition! It was fun to be at such at festival and the atmosphere was great.

But less about the festival and more about the project.

We have under and over engineered this project in my opinion.

We have been busy lasercutting the optimal shapes for blowing bubbles with our amount of air available.

But on the other hand we have been cutting multiplex due to budget cuts. However as much as this hybrid of two worlds is a monster, it is a beautiful monster.

Human Factors

Front of the LED-Spotlight (64B LED pro: American DJ)

In the new course Human Factors, in my group I have to improve the performance of a LED-light (seen above) to make it nicer to be handled with by the user. Therefore we analyze the LED-light by setting up tasks and look which issues occur. Additional to that we were supposed to gather data by interviews, observations or surveys. I took an interview with a friend of mine, who organizes parties every week and is used to work with these kind of LED-spotlights. The goal of the course is to be able to have a detailed analysis of the chosen product (other groups chose products like microwaves or calculators) and a precise information about possible improvements.

Button’s for piano.

20/06/2012

For the course of Have Fun and Play, we wanted have 7 switches to be recognized by a computer as keypresses to be compatible with the program Garageband. After looking for the options with arduino, where we found out this would be a bad solution and not easy either. I figured why not rip apart a usb keyboard. follow the matrix’s to see which keys are connected to which pin. Soldered some wires. And tada a perfectly working set of piano keys!

The complete project will be done soon!
