In Lab 7 we learned how DC and stepper motors work and how to code them! A video of the DC motor in operation is here and a video of the stepper motor in action is here (full rotation here). Part 1 of the was getting the DC motor to work. Below are some pictures of the […]Read more "Lab 7"
For this project we were tasked with creating an Artificial Human Companion (AHC). For this project I wanted to create something that would assist everyday people with everyday problems, this led me to deciding to create an AHC that reminded consumers to close the door to their refrigerator in order to conserve energy, thus was […]Read more "Project 1: Artificial Human Companion [ACH]: Fridge Buddy"
For this project I work with fiber to create a unique embroidery design and master a few knots. I tied a Clove Hitch, Square Knot, Bowline, Figure Eight Knot, Uniknot, Taught Hitch, and an Alpine Butterfly, it was very… knotty.Read more "Project 3: Fiber Work"
I recently completed a sketchbook that spans the past two years. I’ve upload a select few of the pages here and the rest can be viewed here. Enjoy!Read more "Sketches"
Lab 6 was a three part lab that introduced us to servo motor functions and producing sound. Below is the first part of the lab in which we use a variable resistor to activate a servo motor. A video of my servo in action can be seen here. For part two of the lab we used […]Read more "Lab 6"
For this project we were tasked with creating a gondola capable of surviving a high speed impact with a wall using recycled plastics. For my project I took a recycle smoothie bottle, made of PETE and HDPE, and cut a door on top so that I load up to three eggs in the chamber. I […]Read more "Project Two: Plastic Gondola"
For the first part of Lab 5 I used the Arduino board combined with a potentiometer to control the current to the LED. For the second part of Lab 5 I programmed the Arduino in combination with the solder less breadboard and two variable resistors on two separate LEDs. For some reason when I rebuilt […]Read more "Lab 5"
