GLOW


  • Client: Catie Newell
  • Date: Winter 2013
  • Tools: Sublime Text 2, Arduino IDE
  • Materials: Bioplastic, 12v LED, 12v PSU, ULN2803

I was asked to develop and teach two workshops on basic Arduino/electronics for Catie Newell's GLOW seminar at the University of Michigan, Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. Topics included basic wiring, binary (high/low) vs PWM control as well as an introduction to creating hierarchical logic routines which result in desired behaviors.

This culminated in two group projects, for which I helped translate the groups desired behavior into code. Both groups ended up doing schematically similar projects, where laser trip wires triggered fading/flowing of banks of light.
