Thar She Glows

If you’re not following my snapchat, you’re really missing out. It’s crazy.

Plugging in the arduino and finding out I’d actually managed to rig up the circuit right was one of the most exciting things that has ever happened to me. I definitely wasn’t expecting it. It sure as hell didn’t look like it was going to work. There were wires everywhere, and I did not make my life easier by trying to colour code it. Starting with electronics has been a bit of an eye opener in terms of how much I might be biting off with this thesis project of mine(Again I skipped the Wednesday post this week, but the February update has been posted on the thesis page). Not least the cost of it. No more lunches from Subway for me. My thesis project may save my salt and cholesterol filled heart.

Other highlights of this week include progress with the paper dress and making my incredibly competitive class play musical chairs in the name of science. There was a lot of violence, and I got college credit for it. This was part of a seminar a group of us had to organise, and I have been coasting off the accomplishment of having finished it since  Monday. These were also the presentation slides that I wasn’t designing. But totally ended up designing. Because I have a problem.

This is really short…

I also read lots of things this week. Interesting things. Actually if its something you are vaguely bothered with, Fundamentals of Wearable Computers and Augmented Reality edited by Woodrow Barfield is a fantastic read.
