Final - Music Performance

CLASS

Always on Always connected,Interactive Music

I made this project for the Always on Always Connected and Interactive Music Class. The goal of this project was to use the mobile devices as a controller for a physical experience and use other people laptops (screen and speakers) to output a musical performance. In addition to this, I also wanted to explore different uses of websites, taking it from a personal to a collective experience. I… [read more →]

Always On Midterm

CLASS

Always on Always connected

For the midterm, I worked on making a mobile app music controller for a live performance experience through the browser. This project is going to be a series of apps to control music samples and visuals on diferent websites using web sockets. For the midterm, I wanted to try if the communication between the app and the website, also how the experience behave when I have multiple laptops playing… [read more →]

Physical Web / Beacons

CLASS

BLE

For this week assignment, we had to design a system that uses beacons. Together with Kenzo Nakamura we thought on the idea of building a beacon system for products where as a user you can access the manufacturer or user history data of specific products through a physical web link provided by the beacon of the product. Let's think you come across a ping pong table you really like and you want to… [read more →]

Noble Node.js Central BLE LE

CLASS


For this assignment, I made an app to open an Atom window in the computer when a physical button is pressed. It's using my computer as a central device and it's built on Nodejs using the Noble module. The peripheral it's a button sketch running on an Arduino 101. The button sends the data to the central when is pressed and the central device runs the following command lines "$ open… [read more →]

Potenciometer, Bluetooh LE and Cordova App

CLASS

BLE

For this assignment, I wanted to keep working with the potentiometer sketch. This time I wanted to connect my peripheral ( potentiometer thought and Arduino 101 ) to a mobile app made with Cordova as a central device. At the moment the central device is reading the data as a notification and through Javascript, it's modifying the background of the body tag. For the future, I'm going to add a… [read more →]

First Assignment Bluetooh LE

CLASS

BLE

The first assignment for the Bluetooth LE consisted on to create our own peripheral and connect it through Bluetooth to a Cental Device. In this case, I made a peripheral that works with a potentiometer service and one characteristic send the value as a notification. I'm using LightBlue explorer to read the data. The code for this project can be found here: Github [read more →]

Wireframes and App review




Wireframes The assigment this week was to create a simple wireframe of an app I would like to do. I choose to create Zine which is an ios app to create Zines as a pdf using the images of the library in the phone. App Review Citymapper is a simple and usable travel map app for big cities. It is a very fast app although there is a bunch of data being sourced at the same time such as google maps,… [read more →]

Mounting Motors

CLASS

Intro to Fabrication

For this week the assignment was to mount a motor so I decided to use a motor I have never used, a stepper. For the base and the support of the motor I wanted to use the crappy wood I got for my first project and I did not use. In this case, it would be ok to work with because it was needed just to hold the motor and pieces. Cutting the wood. To attach the motor to the wood a used the Stepper… [read more →]

Two Materials

CLASS

Intro to Fabrication

This has been the most complicated assignment for me during the Intro to Fabrication class. We had to make anything using two materials besides plywood and acrylic. I guess the hard part for me was that I did not have an idea until very late that week so when I decided what would I like to do, I just did not have the time to achieved. Time management, I should have learned this after my first… [read more →]

ICM AND PCOMM FINAL (WIP)

CLASS

Intro to Computational Media,Intro to Physical Computing

I like to collect images, either from the internet or scan them. This project is meant to be a tool for me. A tool to help me create and design new images based on the ones I have plus shapes made from random users. Something like an interactive digital collage. The context of this tool should be on an exhibition where the visitor could play with the device while they are creating new images. The… [read more →]
