P-Comm final – progress, BOM, timeline



 

It was a busy week of ordering my parts, and a slow week of waiting for them to send. I read the manual on the prized item, the Fluxamasynth Shield, but until it arrives, I can’t get to figuring out how this song can be put together, thus forming the ideas of what I can make the sensors do to dynamically change the song.

I do have a lot of sensors that have arrived that I plan on trying to implement: A compass (so when a person changes direction, instruments will be introduced or taken away), an accelerometer (both by itself or within a pedometer already to count steps and turn it into beats-per-minute), a gyroscope (which I’m not sure how I’d implement, but it’s there!), and the EEG sensors on the Mindwave headset.

The pedometer, after a few walking tests, has proven to not be the most accurate thing ever. The reviews said it was one of the most accurate, but it sure is temperamental. However, when aggregating the steps and turning it into BPM, a step here and there may not make a difference. So it’ll be interesting to see when music gets involved.

The EEG sensor is expensive, and I’m not sure how well it will work while walking and running while still allowing for comfort (i.e. I want to put it in a neon headband holding the headphones, not on the a setup such as the mindwave). So, I need to see how it works, when I get to that step after the BPM is working properly.

Timeline:

Nov. 6 – Nov. 10 – Wait for parts – Synth shield is crucial for testing

Nov. 7 – Nov.11 – Begin figuring out how to get steps to Arduino

Nov. 10 – Nov. 17 – Learn to write a MIDI song via Arduino IDE and Synth Shield

Nov. 14 – Nov. 23 – Implement the sensors making changes in the song

Nov. 23 – Dec. 4 – Calibrate sensors, refine, test on people, put on the body

Dec. 4 – Dec. 11 – Based on user testing day, make corrections and adjustments

 

And a still shot of my BOM:

  • Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

  • First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!

    Another thing I have really noticed is for many people, poor credit is the result of circumstances above their control. As an example they may are already saddled by having an illness so that they have substantial bills for collections. It could be due to a work loss or perhaps the inability to work. Sometimes breakup can send the funds in the undesired direction. Many thanks sharing your opinions on this weblog.

  • I’m not sure why but this weblog is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
