P. Comp Final
After our last class, we noticed that the “gate” picture below, will not stay stable for more than a couple of minutes.
Hence, it wouldn’t really support the buttons coming out of the poles on the sides.
Therefore, after David suggested we hang the gate from the wall and place the buttons separately, we decided to just do that.
So far, we have the serial communication WORKING *place tears of joy here* BUT we just need them to move along with the skeleton.
We have the poles spray painted black AND WE HAVE THE ROTATION OF THE ARMS AND LEGS mapped out perfectly (thanks to Lisa Jamhoury of course)
We also figured out how to wire the RGB strip!
As of now we can’t play the sketch in full screen which breaks my heart, but Elena thinks if we take the whole thing locally it would solve this tiny little problem. However, when you go to file > share, you will find a link to open the sketch in full screen. It’s not as ideal as changing the word sketches to embed in the sketch’s link, but still works fine.
We reserved the documentation studio to present our P. Comp. final. It took us 4 hours to set everything up for the following day. Luckily there was standing shelves in the studio with long poles on top, so we just placed the top hula hoop inside one of the poles.
Wired everything, and tried so many different positions of both the Kinect and the projector until we found a suitable position for everything. We placed the shoe soles and positioned it where the user is supposed to stand. Also we settled on using the big projector for the presentation because it showed a clear image while being far from the wall.
On our last and final presentation, we checked out the following materials:
Projector the big one
Thanks to David, our instructor, he checked out these stuff for us before the ER officially opens to start setting up before class.
While setting up, we noticed that the RGB strip is not working, but it magically worked while presenting.
