This is a remote interactive device. Two people each own a device. When your device senses your presence, the other party’s device will light up. In this way we want people to connect with each other. It consists of an ESP8266 board/two LED lights/an infrared ranging module. In the future, it can make some changes in shape and color. At the same time, you can also change the effect of the light to make the light move.
1, This is a small lamp for long-distance couples. There are two in total, each of which has a PIR sensor. When it feels someone in the range, the other one’s light will turn on. So we can connect two people in this way.
2, This is a monitor worn on a hat. I choose on my mobile phone, it can express my emotions on my behalf. Such as being happy or surprised. I don’t need to talk. I can always play on the phone. This will look very cool. Be like I don’t want to talk to you at all.
3, Or I can make some improvment on the cloak I made for Halloween…
At the beginning, I wanted to imitate the flow of light. After making it finally, I have to admit that there are actually tapes everywhere inside. I used a light strip close to 3.5m, which made it almost impossible for me to sew it.
In the process, I learned that I need to make reasonable use of the functions that have been written. Don’t reinvent the wheel. At the same time, I especially enjoy this process. I haven’t written a program for a long time.
Compared to humans, the program is cute. Yes is yes and no is no. If I can do it again, I will definitely not buy such thick clothes. There is no light at all. I can only stick the light strip on the outside and then cover it with a layer of black cloth.
This is a robe. I put the LED light strip inside. It can hear outside sounds. When you wear it and walk into a forest at night, white light will flow slowly over it. When you wear it into parties and clubs, it will be stimulated by sound. After that, it will emit a rainbow-colored and fast-flowing light effect.
I need more time to complete a code. I will make up this part before the course starts.
This dress is a cloak. At the beginning, I wanted to catch the light. Because light will slow down in special materials. I think we can have a material that can slow the flow of light so that the human eye can see it? In the end I found it impossible, at least for now. So I want to use leds to simulate the flow of light. Then put it in the clothes. After this idea was formed, because I had referenced the code of the project I was wearing on my head, the code of this project did not seem to change. I thought about how to change it. So I decided to add a sensor. Let it make some changes. Finally, I decided to use a sound sensor to change the light state according to the size of the external sound.
I used the RGBW light strip and sound detection module. I also bought a super large battery.
As for the Arduino technique(s) I’m using, I will combine the light drop and rainbow in the Arduino code..
I don’t have white color on that board. So it’s not running in the right way.
Then I checked to code to understand how it works.
After doing this, I created my Halloween Costume Brainstorming. I was inspired by cyber wig and wanted to make something that also allows light to flow. I will make it into a dress. In this way, the room for improvement in the later stage will be larger.
At the same time, I hope it can have some interactive functions with the environment if possible. So I also reserved space and routes for adding sound controllers in the future.
This night light comes from meat bone toys. I choose this because it has four angles so I can put four lights inside. I intended to make some hand toys but they were not suitable for the requirment. This is used to make people feel relaxed. Although it’s a little bit tricky, I think the user will love this little cutie no matter how I design it. After all I made this.
Things used: cardboard, brown fabric, ping-pong ball, lights, Foam
This is the start of sewing. I tried to make it meticulous.
I used the foam to diffuse the light, since I bought the wrong blue lights which has a very strong directivity.
Also I used ping-pong balls to make light more gentle.
I found the most challenging part to be the sewing part. I sew twice to make it clear because at the first time I sew I didn’t do it perfectly. So I have to cover it up after done. If I had more time I would sew more carefully from the beginning.
Description of my night light’s story and the target user
This is for my girlfriend. A few days ago I told her this project. She always likes soft toys since I remember. So next week I’m going to redo a soft hand toy. This is a test of the process and the light color. I think purple is so ideal when done.
Description of the parts and materials I plan to use
I’m using pp cotton. It’s soft and light. Aslo with a unparalleled penetrability for lights.
The material used in prototype was from old clothes. Very thin. I plan to use a thicker one since it would provide a better shape outside.
