Assignment 3: Motorized Emotions

Motorized Emotions:  Make a kinetic interaction that expresses an emotion.

Due:  Wed, 27 Sep, 23:59hrs.

Find an emotion you can display with motion.  A couple of examples I used in class:

  • Light makes plants happy:  Use a photoresistor to detect light and create more motion when there is more light, less motion when it is dark.
  • Cats like to be petted:  Use buttons or other inputs to “pet” your cat, use a servo for a wagging tail and tactors to simulate purring.

Document your project with a Fritzing sketch of your circuit, an Arduino sketch, and video.  I’d like everyone to demonstrate these in class on the following Thursday.
