Projection mapping is the process of warping or aligning projected images and videos to match the dimensions of physical objects. Essentially it is the […]
At the end of June I was lucky enough to be able to present some of my work in open-source assistive technology at this year’s Maker Faire: Kansas City! Earlier this year I heard about the “call for makers” through various blogs I follow and I figured I should give it a shot. They accepted […]
I’ve spent a considerable amount of time this semester researching and experimenting with various 3D scanning systems with the eventual goal of scanning student pieces in some sort of curricular activity. I started off by scanning objects (including lots of cool glass work) using 123D Catch. I learned quite a bit about how to successfully […]
Experimenting with non-traditional applications of 3D-printing technology within traditional printmaking processes. This “how to” relies on a simple OpenSCAD script I wrote to generate embossing, intaglio and stencil plates. This technique was used in a class in Spring 2013 to teach undergrad art majors about 3D printing.
What is it? The “sip n puff” interface is a unique input method for individuals with limited mobility that interprets a user’s breath (inhaling and exhaling) using a sensor connected to a tube held in the user’s mouth. By inhaling (sipping) or exhaling (puffing) through the tube, the user can trigger various actions to occur […]
What is it? The MaKey MaKey is a neat little circuit board that allows you to turn nearly anything into a keyboard or mouse that works on any computer. All you have to do to get started is use alligator clip wire to connect different parts of the board to physical objects like leaves, Play-Doh, […]
