Physical computing

PCOMP Final project documentary 2.0

For this week, Gabriel and I

  • made three shapes of the lamp by using paper mache;
  • built a prototype that has the circuits for 12v lamp and metal foil;
  • figured out the serial communication between MAX MSP and Arduino;(Because we want to add some effects to the sound, and also make sound loops in realtime, we choose to use MAX MSP instead of the Wave Shield in the end)
  • read the MAX MSP tutorial and learned how to make music in MAX MSP.

Here's some pictures and videos.

These are our three paper maches. We'll paint them when they totally dry out.

This is the circuits with 12v lamp and metal foil.


These are three videos testing the lamp. We decided to use the 20w yellow lamp and cut more holes on the shape of the lamp.

This is a screenshot of our serial communication code in MAX MSP.
