A glimpse at the revised version of the online dashboard monitor for the energy harvesting module. It been a big javascript learning curve this past week, but well worth it. Many more features and improvement still to come, as well as further data integration. check it out – let me know what you think.


First simple demonstration of radio communication – Glow That LED: Set up a two-way wireless LED glower, using XBee radios as the communications link.  Here turning the pot on one micro-controller has the values sent to the other and has an LED turn on and adjust its brightness as well as vise versa.  I prefer […]


  Description Ignoratio Elenchi is a physical interactive video content driver. The installation creates a space in which the viewer is faced with having meaningful information, via video footage of the war, hidden from them. Through proximity sensors mounted on each screen to find when a user is in front of any one of five […]

This past week was spent installing my project in the front space of the ITP floor. Rob Ryan has been super generous and gave me all the resources i needed to set up this project, test it and revise it. After speaking to him last week and explaining the project, he didn’t hesitate to find […]


As of midnight last night, everything is working again. The last major hurled was getting rid of the micro-controller and working with the chips on the Xbee radios to send and receive data. One master transmitter receives byte values from a video tracking algorithm using the jmyron library in Processing, which blankets out the data […]


Step two towards my Networked objects final. I had written a little program in Processing to switch between two videos from incoming bytes from an Arduino, but Java just couldn’t handle the switching well enough – lag and sound sync problems. So I switched to Max/MSP/Jitter for the video handling which works great. The serial […]


I found these amazing add-on’s for the XBox that contain a 6″ LCD and speakers with all the ins and outs u need built-in, (RCA, s-video, 2x 1/8″headphone & more), made by Intec, for $29 a piece. This is around the same price as a raw graphic LCD display alone from a surplus store that […]


Some Ideas: 1. Hacking 5 portable dvd players and mounting them on a wall or walls, unless a better solution is found to display video. the lcd’s are removed from their plastic housing and mounted to an opening of a cast body part – limb. Been working with limbs b/c amputees are the most common […]


This is the beginning documentation of an idea that I’m working on hopefully towards a final project in conjunction with networked objects and a handful of zigbee radios, hopefully. This is using video tracking to follow a person in space and draw their trajectory as lines across the screen – the line getting thicker when […]
