Homework & Ideas for final project

Hi all! I am sorry for the delay.

Here is my homework.


And these are my ideas for the final project:

1.Flowed Light

It comes from my previous idea. The flowed light use the flowing of light to represent the passing of time. When you turn on the light, it will all light up and then goes off gradually from the top to the bottom of the spiral.

2. Long-distance connected teddy bears


The long-distance connected teddy bears are used for the long-distance relationships, including the lovers, families, and friends. When you hug one of the bears, the two bears’ hearts will light up together.

3.Speaking pressure ball


The speaking pressure ball can help people release the pressure by patting it. And at the same time when patted, it will say some words randomly like “take it easy!”, “it will be fine” or “cheers baby!”.

Thank you!!

  1. Nice brainstorm, Sherry!
    1. This could be cool! Here’s a type of addressable strip that’s only white: https://www.adafruit.com/?q=white%20addressable%20dotstar (I have some I can bring you next class if you want). You could detect the flip with a tilt ball switch (https://www.adafruit.com/product/173 and they may have them at Tinkersphere) or accelerometer(https://www.adafruit.com/product/2809)

    2. This is a popular idea and very feasible, you can use the code from lesson 6 as a base. Also check out my version: https://www.instructables.com/id/Internet-Valentine/ To make a “hug sensor” you could could make a felt sensor using conductive fiber (https://www.kobakant.at/DIY/?p=3089 https://www.adafruit.com/product/1088 https://youtu.be/SlfvQyEQgIc)

    3. This is a fun idea! An “easy” vibration sensor might be appropriate for detecting pats: https://www.adafruit.com/product/1766 or perhaps a capacitive touch sensor: https://www.adafruit.com/product/1374
