02. STP in Antarctic Village

Animation

Demo

This just the beginning of my story, I’ll make more later.

Whole Story

There is an antarctic village,  lived with penguins and scientists(expedition team). One day, a penguin named STP saw two news on the internet. One is about water pollution: there is no fish in the ocean because scientists have done something bad to the environment here, so penguins can only buy very expensive fish in the market to eat, a lot of penguins cannot afford it. Another news is about how a smart penguin exchanged small things to fish. Then STP decided to do the same exchange thing. She used some small things like nuts,  string, knife finally changed for a blender. She made a cup of juice by the blender and drinker it all. This is the end of the story.

After the end of the story, I’ll tell the true story: in fact, all the small things which STP used for exchange   were from trashes that scientists left. STP fist used these small tools to kill a scientist, and then exchanged them. The juice was made of the dead scientist’s flesh. 

06. MOUNTING MOTORS

Fabrication

Demo

This is my pcom final prototype2.0, made by 3D printing.

The full view: a huge cup can hold a plastic cup.

Top: the four tube is for hold sent oil.

Top cover: the four hole on the top is for mount buttons, the four small hole on the side is for smell to coming out.

Bottom: mount fan, because the squares are very precise for fan, i can simply plug the fan on it, and use very little hot glue, it’s very stable. the hole is connect from fan to tube and top of the cup.

05. prototype for pcom

Fabrication

Demo

This is my pcom final prototype1.0.

The red cotton ball contains strawberry smell oil. The fan will blow wind in the bubble, so the strawberry smell will coming through the tube. User will smell from the end of the tube.

Syllabus

Fabricate something using primarily two different materials.  Let’s say the project is roughly 40% one material, 40% the other.  The materials cannot be acrylic or plywood.  The work should be held together using fasteners of your choosing.

Process

Material: I got food oil and plastic bubble from Michael’s, tube from Homedepot, cotton ball from itp junk shelf.

Use knife to cut a hole for  hold fan.

Use hot glue to mount fan.

Put some oil on cotton ball and put it in the bubble.

Use hot glue to connect tube and bubble

 

 

 

Pcom & ICM Final – Future of eating

Computational Media, Physical Computing

Scenario

In the future, we have food shortage problem because of environmental pollution. All the food are chemical synthesis to meet the nutritional needs of the human body. They looks the same, have no smell,  have no taste. People be implanted with  chips to control what they feel of food(vision, smell, taste).

In this case, we don’t need to cook anymore, we can eat “anything” we want and don’t need to consider the nutrition. For example, diabetic can eat “candy” all day, obesity can eat “high-fat” food every meal.

A device is made for experience some part of the future eating. We all know that if you pinch your nose while eat something the taste will fade, even lose some kind of taste. For example, if you pinch your nose while eat chocolate, you can only feel it is sweet, but cannot feel the chocolate taste.

Prototype 1

ICM PART: The video should be replaced by my background story, user can choose to watch it or skip it. This interface should connect with arduino. Each icon represent one taste, from left to right they are strawberry, orange, matcha and chocolate. User can mix multiple taste by selecting multiple icons.

 

Download ICM code

PCOM PART: There will be four of this device, each one contains one taste. The fan is controlled by arduino. Ex. The red cotton ball contains strawberry smell oil. The fan will blow wind in the bubble, so the strawberry smell will coming through the tube. User will smell from the end of the tube. User will be provided with a cup of sweet water, they need to smell from the tube while drinking.

Prototype 2

Made by 3D printing. In this version, I decide only use physical button rather than virtual on screen button.

The full view: a huge cup can hold a plastic cup.

Top: the four tube is for hold sent oil.

Top cover: the four hole on the top is for mount buttons, the four small hole on the side is for smell to coming out.

DIY button test:

Bottom: put everything(fans, prototype board, arduino micro, power jag etc) in here.

Bottom cover:

3D modle:

In this version, I find the DIY buttons are not stable and hard to mount, also the whole cup is too big, so I decide to make another one.

02. Roommate Clock

Fabrication

Demo

Setting clock

Sleeping: Please be quiet, I don’t want to be bothered.

Working: I don’t want to be bothered.

working

??: I’m doing nothing important, you can bother me anytime.

play

Sad: I feel sad / I feel lonely / I need accompany, roomie, talk with me please.

Syllabus

Make multiples of something, 5 or more.  The objects must be a multi-process piece, ie. I don’t want to see 5 things made solely on the laser cutter.

Process

  1. Sketch.

00

2. Draw the outline of the clock.

draw2

3. Cutting in order.

qiege2

4. Making pointer base: first cut pieces of cube, then polish them to column.

14-1

5. Making pointer: cut to triangular prism, polish, polish…

6. Drill a bigger hole on pointer, a smaller hole on the base, use screwdriver and screw to stick them together.

7. Sanding all the pieces.

22-11

8. Glue all and write.

23 24-1

9. Repeat but a little different.

final

Problems

  1. Missing one stop block, so I used a speed clamps for instead, but after two cut, everything blowed up.

2. The first pointer base I made was not hard enough for drill, it broken into two pieces. So I changed for another type of wood.

Concept

Belly pillow is designed for long-distance relationship. Some people like to lie on the boyfriend’s belly to sleep, for example, me.

How It Work

Materialspillow3

At the end I used flex sensor instead of force sensor. I couldn’t figure out how wave shield works, so I use serial communicate with P5 for control the snoring sound.

Code

P5: https://alpha.editor.p5js.org/projects/Hy3oNOT1l

arduino:
const int sensorPin = A5;
const int heatPin = 9;
int sensorValue = 0;
int heatState = LOW;

void setup() {
Serial.begin(9600);
pinMode(heatPin, OUTPUT);

}

void loop() {
sensorValue = analogRead(sensorPin);
digitalWrite(heatPin, heatState);

// Serial.print(“sensor = ” );
// Serial.println(sensorValue);

if (sensorValue < 800) {

heatState=HIGH;
Serial.println(“1”);

} else {
Serial.println(“0”);
heatState=LOW;
}

delay(1);

}
