Pcomp: /week3-2/ How much you love me

I tried some sensors to make analog input and send digital output through LEDs. At first, I tried these labs: Photoresistance+Green LED, Force-sensing Resistor+Yellow LED, and Rotary Potentiometer + RGB LEDs. Then,  I mixed Force-sensing Resistor and Rotary Potentiometer to control the RGB LEDs. In the circuit, the Force-sensing Resistor controls the blue light’s changing from bright to… Continue reading Pcomp: /week3-2/ How much you love me

At first, I designed this iPad stand holder by just using one piece of acrylic. This is the outline in illustrator. The left picture shows my way to… Continue reading Fabrication: /week3/ Stand Holder for iPad

Pcom: /week1/ What is physical interaction?

What is physical interaction? In my opinion, physical interaction is the communications between people and other devices in a touchable and three dimensional way, which include a integrated process of input, process, and response. I got some inspirations from this reading passage, which are important for me to recognize what physical interaction is as a former UI… Continue reading Pcom: /week1/ What is physical interaction?
