Skill Set: Web App Programming (PHP, Rails)
Things to learn: basic circuits, interactive hardware, better sewing techniques
Goal: A mobile suit with a high powered sound system, interactive LEDs, and a way to sync music across multiple bots.
Current status: A first attempt works, but many elements can be vastly improved upon.
Things to work out:
- Create a new set of shoulder/chest armor with integrated wiring, and space for speakers
- Create a custom battery pack to evenly distribute weight throughout the chest armor
- Figure out how to use raspberry pi to set up a mesh network to sync sound on an ad-hoc network (currently using fm transmitter)
- User arduino to control interactive LED lights - and come up with a better way to mount lights
Interactive LED Jumpsuit
Goal: Sew 8 leds on each arm, and 12 leds on each leg, hook them up to a mic and display patterns based on sounds.
