This was my first ever Arduino and physical computing project as part of my BSc Product Design course at Middlesex University London. The brief given was:
“To develop a new user experience for smartphone camera users. The system should enable users to shoot amazing video that has either not previously been possible or that can only be done with expensive professional systems”
I wanted to focus on the Bullet time effect the visual technique made famous by the Matrix films and more recently used in BBC’s Sherlock.
As part of my project I was required to use Arduino & related physical computing resources that I had available to me.
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.
