Project Progress

I got the sensor to work, and it turns out it wasn’t broken at all. I just needed to solder it. So, that made me livid, but anyway.

I spent the weekend getting the physical part together. It’s not exactly a core component, since the sensor doesn’t need a fancy-looking encasement, but it was the most practical move since I’ll be heading home for Thanksgiving, where I wouldn’t be able to laser cut anything.

The next step on my side would be to translate the Processing code to p5, so that the sensor can control the yaw/pitch/roll for WEBGL objects. Apparently, Processing and p5 are cousins, so it shouldn’t be overly difficult. I might eat those words in a hot second though.

  1. You guys are so talented! I really liked the interactive aspect of this project, that it was different that just using the mouse on the screen! I think thought that a user might be afraid to break the laser-cut ball because it seems quite fragile. We did talk about how in reality, it is quite a sturdy structure but I think it is because the entwined wires is white short. Definitely think about getting a bit more flexible wires and longer in length! I think it might make the interaction more ‘flexible’ or ‘easy’. Can’t wait to see it all finished (Even though you guys are basically done ahaha)!
