Playing with possibilites

Had a great time today at the Village, went from working on the Makey Makey ground shades to making LED shades. Talked with some more folks about doing etextiles workshops and had a blast making stuff in general! Paul and I tinkered around and are having thoughts about making an animation of some sort. This was reinforced by a couple videos we took and Josh, a potential helping hand at the hotspot, being an Animation major at Art Institute. Collaboration !

Artbots #1

done @ the village
this was a mixture of a simple circuit she was playing with and the simplest artbot we could put together.
It looks like it’s waltzing across the paper.

An afternoon of loud noises and bright lights

Some artbot action happening while piezo buzzers were a’screechin’.

Starting to get a few people interested in Makey Makey sessions and looking into ways of making a long-exposure artbot for upcoming photography classes/sessions. 

Rainy Friday afternoon activities

We went all out with squishy circuits and some Makey Makey fun. The possibility box really opened the conversation up for some upcoming e-textile stuffs+ I was amazed at how quick Aisha went from lighting up an LED to prototyping/testing some LilyPad LED wearables with force sensors (<45min).

nts: Gotta upgrade the Scratch Station for optimal Makey Makey use/find games so we don’t always resort to Nick.com. We even had some “adults” playing Pac Man!

Have I been reading/watching too much Game of Thrones or is that a snow man and a nice braised drumstick? ^_^
