I didn’t expect this project to be easy, but I also didn’t expect it to be as hard as it was. I wanted to create an LED human figure that lights up using LED motion sensors. I was unable to find motion sensors and ended up having to just use a switch to light the LED lights. Then I found a sensor that works using a light source…So the LEDs would turn on once a light is shinned on the sensor. However, this also didn’t work. The entire process was extremely frustrating for me. I tried watching youtube tutorials and doing anything I could to make all the LED lights work. I had to take apart all the wires I tried to connect, because they ended up sparking, burning out, and releasing horrible fumes. Due to time constraints, I have been forced to create a circuit using one LED and a switch. Therefore, out of all the LEDS on my project, only one works (which is slightly embarrassing). I’m not pleased with my final result and if I could I would like to fix it. I have video documentation of my process, but since I am going to submit the final product next thursday I will update my post then with a link to the video.
Hi all, with the coming electronics project, (and Kate’s love of art you wear) I thought I’d post a link to something I found on boingboing.net (a great site!)
check it out!
PS ill try and post fun things I find to the blog now that I have an account.
i thought this was going to turn out aestheticly pleasing; but i was wrong. alot of the shots i took were jittery due to my inability to keep my hand steady. i did indeed have a tripod that i used for every shot (excluding the walking). i hope you manage to enjoy it somehow…
Here is my music video for Metric – Love is a place. Suprisingly the finished product looks very similar to how I was planning it to look. Using video I enjoy the pre-production and post production process, I really dont like shooting. But in this assignment the shooting went very smoothly and I had a lot of complications editing and transfering my video files. Since I’m using Windows instead of mac os, I had to look up alot of information about having the right format and whatnot. I ended up using Windows Movie Maker for cutting and placing the scenes, then I transfered it to Adobe Premieum CS4 to put in the music and special effects.
My experience with creating this web space was both simple and complex. I used to really enjoy web design, so I am a little familiar with HTML as it is. The challenges I faced were working with some CSS and definitely working from home. I have a MacBook Pro, however, I do not have Fetch. Therefore, I downloaded a program called Cyber Duck, which does the same as Fetch. I had a lot of trouble trying to set it up and getting it to work. Finally, I got it to work and everything is up and running smoothly. I also had issues with trying to get the right design attributes for the links and text since I chose a busy background image. Another issue I’ve been having is uploading my screen shot. For some reason it won’t let me attach it or add it as a link.
Overall, minus the tricky tasks, I found it quite enjoyable creating this project.
Here is a link to my web space.
Hi, this is Sophy and this is my webspace.
This is my first time dealing with html, so I keep it simple. I searched online to see the examples and the codes to create different style. There should be an orange border on the webpage and a different color scroll bar, but it shows differently in the school’s computers. There shouldn’t be any orange circles around the page. Maybe I used Windows at home, so it is different from Mac. I wanted to change the size of my background, but I couldn’t. I could only change the size of my photo on the page. I hope it still looks fine.
