Midterm Assignment (Due Tues, March 6)
- Your midterm assignment can be anything that builds off of or is inspired by the concepts we've covered this first half of the semester (motion and physics). You should feel free to think non-traditionally, i.e. your midterm need not be a Processing sketch. The midterm does not need to be a fully realized project, it is useful to use this time to build out a single component of a larger idea. If you are stuck, feel free to come and talk to me. Or try one of these suggestions:
- Extend one of the examples into 3D
- Design a simulation of a single creature (that you imagine living in a larger eco-system).
- Develop a non keyboard/mouse way of interacting with an environments' forces (i.e. video tracking, sensors, etc.)
- Use physics simulation to fabricate something -- a print, a sculpture, etc.
Please post your documentation to a web page (blog post is fine) and link next to your name below.
- Please include both visual and text documentation of your project, i.e. you might include a short paragraph description, links to relevant projects, video documentation, screenshots, or online applet, etc. The midterm need not be a finished project, it is useful to use this time to build out a single component of a larger idea.
- Each presentation should be less than 10 minutes total. Plan to talk very briefly about the larger idea and demo your implementation, giving yourself only 2-3 minutes (you may use your own laptop or the classroom laptop). This will allow for time for feedback / discussion.
- In addition to whatever prototype implementation you preset, I encourage you to use drawings, images, video, and text to describe your idea
- We will follow the order below so feel free to move things around if you would like to present earlier or later in class, before or after break, etc. (Since the class is 18 students a few of you at the bottom of the list have a chance of being pushed a week later.)
