Exercise 5: Art and Design Inspirations

I found this article on Deezen describing dresses with fabrics that contract and change color appearance depending on the wearer’s surroundings, resembling a chameleon’s ability. https://www.dezeen.com/2019/10/28/flowing-water-standing-time-ying-gao-chameleon-autonomous-dress-fashion/ The color-changing dress components themselves utilize color sensors, light sensors, and tiny cameras linked to a raspberry PI to gather information about the environmental context. Based on the data,

Exercise Three: Lateral Lit Search

Starting from my previous entry for Exercise One, Soft Lego Blocks (J. Lee, J. Eom, W. Choi and K. Cho, “Soft LEGO: Bottom-Up Design Platform for Soft Robotics,” 2018 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS), Madrid, 2018, pp. 7513-7520, doi: 10.1109/IROS.2018.8593546.), I looked at their referenced work for the project. From there I

Exercise 1: Soft Lego Building Blocks

I was interested in this research because the concept introduces a lower barrier of entry to those unfamiliar with the topic of soft robotics and also because of the flexibility in customization that the familiar semantics of the Lego blocks offers. @INPROCEEDINGS{8593546,author={J. {Lee} and J. {Eom} and W. {Choi} and K. {Cho}},booktitle={2018 IEEE/RSJ International Conference
