I found this article to be really fascinating. Starting in IMA, I always was taught that whatever we make, we have to think long and hard about how we can make said thing more accessible to more people (e.g. colors that wouldn’t be challenging to mix up for someone with…


For my final project for my 7-week Information Design class, I will be attempting to answer a question: How far have NFL kickers come over the years? But more importantly, why does it seem like they’re missing now more than normal?

I’m a huge sports guy. It’s something that I…


Title: Pedals of Nature

Description: A project where users can experience something in an unorthodox way — creating sounds with their feet instead of their hands. …


BUT FIRST, continued work on my sink strainer/sink drain. I didn’t make any changes to the Fusion 360 file, but I reprinted it to get an actual working model. See below photos of the third attempt at printing the design — the first successful print!


So far on the project, Eddie and I have hard wired all six foot pedals into the breadboard, each receiving 5V of power, a 1k resistor running from the ground, and each having its own unique digital pin number. In the code, the serial monitor prints out a new line, one number between 1 and 6, each time one of the six pedals is pressed (pictured here, they are in numerical order from left to right).

On the p5.js side, the code is ready for the sound clips to be plugged in, and the only thing we have to do is debug and connect p5 and Arduino through the p5 serial control port! Shaping up to be an easy finish!


In this project, we’re looking for users to experience something in an unorthodox way — creating music with their feet instead of their hands. …


For this project, I wanted to make something practical that I would actually be able to use on an everyday basis. It took me a while to come up with an idea, but it hit me as I was making some soup this weekend, when my kitchen sink drain clogged…


For this project, I used a different kind of analog sensor to create changes in tone through the speaker. Using a potentiometer, I was able to change the 0 to 1023 value to a good range for tone to come out. My setup and code ended up looking like this:


I found the “The US Navy will replace its touchscreen controls with mechanical ones on its destroyers” article extremely fascinating. It seems like for so long, we, as a society, have been looking forward to the future, trying to find cool pieces of tech we can implement into everyday tasks…
