Sun Wheel Six is a video installation which creates a continuous, scanning record of the room in which it’s installed. The record is then displayed on a monitor or projected in the same room. I made it at SUNY Purchase in December 2012. The software end of the project is written in Processing, which communicates to the stepper motor via an Arduino board. The gears were made in SketchUp with Cadalog Inc’s Involute Gear plugin, and fabricated with our school’s Maker Bot Replicator. The documentary video was shot and edited by me, with music by Eric Holsten. The track is called Morning Clip, from Music for Morning by Shocking Twist.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
