For our synthesis project Emannuel and I were paired up (and later joined by Eve) because her partner wasn’t there. We worked on using a potentiometer to serially communicate with p5 and load Images as the knob is turned.
Out initial idea was to use a simple pot and images of puppies downloaded from the internet. But Eve has a small wooden tree and 28 images of it.
Programming that was still going to be difficult since we were new to the concept.
I worked on the circuit, Emanuel drilled a hole in the tree to fit a pot, Eve loaded the images on p5.
For programming the Arduino and p5 sketch, we worked on the basics, but ran into some problems with the Serial library (as it was newly launched). I looked for Sam and cajoled him to come down in what was a very busy day for him. He fixed that.
Then we got the p5 to work! Code below:
It was a crowd favorite with special appreciation from DanO, LaurenMcCarthy, DanShiffman & Shawn Avery.
This project would’ve been nothing if three active minds hadn’t played their cards right and hoped for the best. We all complimented eachothers skills and programmed a great experience for the user.
