edit: servo motor/analog input/processing work now… started over, followed lab examples, and reorganized code. i am afraid the previous versions were unfortunate to have the “three strooges syndrome.” laggy documentation showing servo motor working and flex sensor input *** with sheep. this project came about through the wanting of a cat toy that enable the [...]

picking up a lot of extra things/noise from arduino.

i am mixing found code and figured out code to get processing and arduino to begin communicating. so far i only have a processing sketch that responds to various values being put out by an analog sensor- in this case a force resistor. using the code from the labs for servo motor, serial communication, and [...]

Cat play and toys incorporates predatory games of “play aggression”. Cats’ behaviors when playing are those similar to hunting behavior. These activities allow kittens and younger cats to grow and acquire cognitive and motor skills, and to socialize with other cats. Cat play behavior can be either solitary (with toys or other objects) or social [...]

group: will canine, hanbyul jo, gj lee Basic Concept: Cute Light Following Little Robot Our little robot will drive around trying to find a beam of light coming down from above it. We will use a laser cutter to make the bus, wheels, and other structural components. We also want to try and not use [...]

our group was able to get a working prototype going on saturday using the dc motors. the wheels we made were faulty so while the motors ran, the wheels weren’t able to get the little robot to move. … that will be one of the next issues to work out. group: Will Canine, HanByul Jo, [...]

We will use a laser cutter to make the bus, wheels, and other structural components. We also want to try and not use any pre-fabricated board, instead [...]

Like the Wiimote mentioned in Igoe’s post, the Playstation Move controller relies on an accelerometer. “It reacts to the tilt of the ball, so the performer can be very dramatic in his gestures. These are best when designed for a specific action, generally, but the Wiimote has managed to blow that away by mapping a [...]
