For the Intro to IM final project, I will be working with Susanne to build an integrated device utilizing Arduino and Processing.
The idea was inspired when Susanne mentioned “something visual about our connection or memory; something that relates us not being in the same location.” So, we decided to recreate the environment of logging into a Zoom meeting and entering the meeting’s password. The key feature of this project is to make the process accessible, by including both sounds and light.
🛠 how it will work
The password will be entered by the user using a computer keyboard to the graphical user interface, and during the typing process, different sounds and lights on Arduino will play. If the password combination is right, a congratulating tone will ring and the user will be let into the meeting.
⌨️ next steps
- Finalizee the Processing’s role in the app
- Decide what the Arduino will do
- Discuss the feasibility of the project in class
- Finalize the storytelling aspect of the app
