Mechanisms: Midterm: Zoetrope

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

For the Mechanisms midterm, I created a zoetrope that used a motor to rotate it. I wanted to make a working model of an idea I have for the final. One idea I had was to use a servo motor to make the zoetrope just go back and forth instead of all the way around. I was thinking to integrate a sensor, but decided against it after coming into some problems.

I finally decided on using an AC driven motor from a small single speed fan. The fan was already wired and had a switch. Unfortunately, as I was soldering extensions for both the switch and plug – I melted TWO switches. I know non-lead solder is safer, but man is it harder to work with.

I was also able to find a wooden bowl and lazy Susan that fit perfectly together.

ICM: Window Not S(t)ill

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

This time, when you enter your zip code – you get the temperature, weather description, city, corresponding poem, and a corresponding image that I randomly plucked from the web.

It really only works within Processing (for now), but you can get the source code.

Mechanisms: Gutting It (Hacking Day)

Monday, March 16th, 2009

5 March 2009

We had to bring in some electronic device that we could take apart. I have an old Hi-8 camera I found on the junk shelf, so I figured it would be good to hack. A camcoder is crazy complex inside. It wasn’t that simple to take apart and the tape mechanism stayed completely shut through all the dismantling. I can’t imagine losing the power and having an important tape stuck in there. There’s definitely no putting this thing back together.
