Assignment 5 Prototype: Emma Brennan

My idea for the final project is to create some kind of scared creature that responds to your movement. I wanted there to be a relationship between movement, direction and sound. The closer the person gets to the creature, the further away it retreats and makes sporadic noises. If the person is far enough away, the creature will want to move closer.

I prototyped this interaction using a speaker and leds to resemble motors. The on or off state of the led indicates what direction the motor will travel in. One thing I want to improve is the speed of the motor I will eventually use, and to try and incorporate that into the emotion of the creature.

I am currently having difficulty with getting the response to be understandable and noticeable.
