It has been too long since my last post, but many exciting things have happened since – most of which is in collaboration with GRouND LAB. To follow-up on the  topic of energy conversion and storage from human-powered kinetic sources I have rebuilt a new prototype for the inDoor Energy Harvester that has proven thus […]


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 […]


Now includes an overlayed base-rate and a Max Patch component. Press the button on the front to start the base rate/ resting rate sound and LEDs to know how far from rest your pulse is – press it again to raise the rate and work to match it: goal rate. This can be raise three […]
