Circuit trials

Banana circuit

Circuit I made using a banana

Springy Circuit

Attempt #1 on a breadboard “what happens when all the wires are beside each othe?”

Soft Wearable

This soft circuit wearable is for sportwear, it indicates if the user is correctly doing an exercise. When the two pieces touch, the LED lights up, because the circuit is closed. The battery is on the bottom half and the light is on the top half.

I created this wearable by sewing two simple fabric bands, and elastic because the user will be moving a lot. I sewed aluminum foil panels for connectivity and used the conductive thread for the circuit.

This project can be developed into a “counter” to keep track of how many exercises are done, and also be applied to other parts of the body like arms for doing lifts.

Because the panels have to be aligned correctly positive and negative, I sewed simple diagonal indicators so the user can intuitively put on the device.

threads

I was careful sewing the conductive thread so not to show on the outside of fabric (I was not so careful with the sewing machine, that thing goes fast!)

Blog 10-Image Mapping

HERE IS THE FINAL RESULT: http://tolg.tumblr.com/map (scroll over the nails to see links)

Some websites have very nice menu pages that look like images

I tried to make one too so I chose this image because it has many different nail art designs of classic scary movies.

I began with looking for the coordinates in photoshop of each of the nails so I can create a “hotspot” for each of the movies.

At first when I previewed it, the image worked, but there was extra code

Once I set the coordinates, I added the link to the movie’s wikipedia page, and set window properties.

Once I previewed it on the real internet by uploading it to tumblr, the links worked, but the image didn’t show.

I uploaded the image with the URL from the internet instead of my file. This was the code

I changed it a little, and this happened

So I tried to change the code again

Here is the final result: http://tolg.tumblr.com/map

Blog 9

click here for page I made in DreamWeaver

I had some difficulty, but I pretty much wrote this blog post on the webpage it self
It seems that all the text is considered a link… I tried look if there was an open but there is alot of html text and I cant find it (if that’s even the problem!)

Another problem is how the image (which is saved in my computer, in my DreamWave folder) does not show on the internet

/* ~~ These are the columns for the layout. ~~

1) Padding is only placed on the top and/or bottom of the divs. The elements within these divs have padding on their sides. This saves you from any "box model math". Keep in mind, if you add any side padding or border to the div itself, it will be added to the width you define to create the *total* width. You may also choose to remove the padding on the element in the div and place a second div within it with no width and the padding necessary for your design.

2) No margin has been given to the columns since they are all floated. If you must add margin, avoid placing it on the side you're floating toward (for example: a right margin on a div set to float right). Many times, padding can be used instead. For divs where this rule must be broken, you should add a "display:inline" declaration to the div's rule to tame a bug where some versions of Internet Explorer double the margin.

3) Since classes can be used multiple times in a document (and an element can also have multiple classes applied), the columns have been assigned class names instead of IDs. For example, two sidebar divs could be stacked if necessary. These can very easily be changed to IDs if that's your preference, as long as you'll only be using them once per document.

4) If you prefer your nav on the right instead of the left, simply float these columns the opposite direction (all right instead of all left) and they'll render in reverse order. There's no need to move the divs around in the HTML source.

The above links demonstrate a basic navigational structure using an unordered list styled with CSS. Use this as a starting point and modify the properties to produce your own unique look. If you require flyout menus, create your own using a Spry menu, a menu widget from Adobe’s Exchange or a variety of other javascript or CSS solutions.

If you would like the navigation along the top, simply move the ul.nav to the top of the page and recreate the styling.

BLOG NUMBER 9

Today, I will try to make an interesting dreamweaver designed page. This is a basic page because this is the first time I use this program

Header two

To make a font stand out from the rest of the text instead of

you put for header.The first header was called

and the second one was called

. I wonder if this is a weird way to size the font, or if it helps organize how many headers there are, only one way to find out!

It seems that it IS a weird way to scale the font. Lets see what happens if I use a number below 1..

I guess you can’t go below 1 to make the header bigger…

Because all the columns are floated, this layout uses overflow:hidden on the .container. This clearing technique forces the .container to understand where the columns end in order to show any borders or background colors you place on the .container. If you have a large element that protrudes outside the .container, it will appear to be cut off. You also won’t be able to use negative margins or absolute positioning with negative values to pull elements outside the .container or they will also won’t display outside the .container.

Here I will try to add items to my paragraphs



Backgrounds

By nature, the background color on any div will only show for the length of the content. This means if you’re using a background color or border to create the look of a side column, it won’t extend all the way to the footer but will stop when the content ends. If the .content div will always contain more content, you can place a border on the .content div to divide it from the column.
