Black Wuchang(Chinese ghost)

Black Wuchang is Chinese ghost. The reason why I want to choose it to as my Halloween costume is I want to spread Chinese culture, and let foreigners to know Chinese ghost.

My design’s hardest part is the structure of hat. So I plan to use wire to build frame. And then, use black fabric to cover it.

The key point is Led behind the paper. I plan to use coding to blink light. I will also fix LED on Iron chains. The Iron chain is the weapon of Black Wuchang.

Joey’s 5 week assignment

A Moment for Motors

Neo Pixel Strip

CODE

// Parameter 1 = number of pixels in strip
// Parameter 2 = pin number (most are valid)
// Parameter 3 = pixel type flags, add together as needed:
// NEO_RGB Pixels are wired for RGB bitstream
// NEO_GRB Pixels are wired for GRB bitstream, correct if colors are swapped upon testing
// NEO_RGBW Pixels are wired for RGBW bitstream
// NEO_KHZ400 400 KHz bitstream (e.g. FLORA pixels)
// NEO_KHZ800 800 KHz bitstream (e.g. High Density LED strip), correct for neopixel stick
Adafruit_NeoPixel strip = Adafruit_NeoPixel(NUM_LEDS, PIN, NEO_GRBW + NEO_KHZ800);

void setup() {

strip.setBrightness(BRIGHTNESS);
strip.begin();
strip.show(); // Initialize all pixels to ‘off’
}

void loop() {
// Some example procedures showing how to display to the pixels:

colorWipe(strip.Color(59, 60, 7), 50); // Green
colorWipe(strip.Color(0, 0, 500), 50); // Blue

colorWipe(strip.Color(0, 255, 255), 0); // Red
colorWipe(strip.Color(0, 0, 0, 0), 50); // White

}

// Fill the dots one after the other with a color
void colorWipe(uint32_t c, uint8_t wait) {
for(uint16_t i=0; i<strip.numPixels(); i++) {
strip.setPixelColor(i, c);
strip.show();
delay(wait);
}
}

void pulseWhite(uint8_t wait) {
for(int j = 0; j < 256 ; j++){
for(uint16_t i=0; i<strip.numPixels(); i++) {
strip.setPixelColor(i, strip.Color(0,0,0, j ) );
}
delay(wait);
strip.show();
}

KT PILLOW(plush night light)

Draft 1
Draft 2
Draft 3
Draft 4

This product is for children whose parents can’t be with them. If they miss their parents, they can light the lamp on this pillow. The parents can receive the message through the APP. This allows parents to feel their children’s emotions in real time.

Joey’s Plush Night Light Proposal

Baby Pillow

Nowadays, people are so busy that they hardly have enough time to company with their children. so will want to use my design to convey the love to children.

I select material which is very soft, especially for child, and the color is light. Although, my prototype looks not very good. But i think is the material reason.
