PCOM : FINALS 2

Since our play testing, we have been working on our lights and here is the progress from last time!

Feedback from play testing

There was a consistent feedback about the size. People liked that it was small and they could play with it using their hands. We initially had an idea of it responding to sound, but that was largely felt as distracting. One common opinion was that it was too fragile.

PCOM 4A : word.camera

This weekend at the Maker Faire, I got a chance to help Ross Goodwin, a second year at ITP who was presenting his work – word camera. This is essentially an image to text converter.“word.camera uses convolutional neural networks (via Clarifai) to extract concept words from images. It expands those initial words (mostly nouns) into sentences and paragraphs using a lexical relationship database (ConceptNet) and a flexible template system.””

PCOM 2 : ORIGAMI SWITCH

In class this week, we sat down to learn about basic circuits and switches. I will admit that I was curious as to what we could do with switches. Once class started in full swing, I was fascinated by the possible circuits and “games” that was made from just the concept of completing circuits!! The one that I was extremely amused by was the one where you have to take a loop through a wire, and if they touched, there would be a loud and annoying buzzer.

So thinking on similar lines, I wanted to create a little “toy” where if you use it right, the LED lights up. Being a huge origami fan, I went with the flapping crane.
