The Pictures

Well, as you see, I found myself a mannequin. You can see lots of the design features I describe in the post below, so If your interested it may be better to read my previous post first and then check back with the pictures when I start to confuse you.

And yes, she creeps me out as well. And I …..

Evaluating what I have done so far...

As blogger wont let me upload more pictures I will take some time to think about what I have done so far…

What are the main features of my prototype?

–         It is modular. There are basic Velcro pads which form the structure for mounting the sensors. The sensors are then placed on the Velcro.
–         The sensors are off-axis. Because of this, …..

Ok, the Velcro design I came up with yesterday has proven useful. I made some minor modifications (you don’t see it in the video, but I am actually wearing something similar to a dogs collar…) and hooked up everything to my Arduino.  After some fiddling around with the values (translating the resistance to values appropriate for the servos, scaling these …..

Ok, so I found some children’s shin-protection gear at Action.I figured if I strap these to my arms – covered in Velcro – this would make it easier to attach my sensors.So I covered my sensors in the fluffy part of Velcro, covered the shin-protectors with the scratchy part and voila! 

 

Feels like a step in the right direction. Theoretically …..
