Lab: Multimodal Media Madness (M3) Personal Fabrication

About

This years topic is about Personal Fabrication. Buiding your own hardware projects with the help of computer controlled tools.

Final Projects

For the final projects the students could choose to do crazy stuff with electronic and hardware tools. As a result they produced:
  • The Retro Radio Riddle
  • A modular puzzle based upon Keep talking and nobody explodes
  • The DipTrainer (No such attachment on this page) to keep you in shape
  • The intelligent box for drinks after your exercises
  • The Guitar Buddy (No such attachment on this page) for training your guitar skills
  • Building your own augmented reality glasses (No such attachment on this page)
  • A HomeKit Controller (No such attachment on this page)
  • Building a modular pinball machine

Some awesome one-week-assigments

  • A small pinball machine (No such attachment on this page)

Time

Wednesday, 14:00-16:00, room 2212 , Ahornstr. 55
Start: 03.05.2017.



About

You will learn:
  • How to use the laser cutter with VisiCut.
  • How to use Arduino (Atmega & Co.), Energia (MSP430 & Co.) and Processing (Visualisation) for controlling hardware
  • How to use the pcb mill and Eagle to design and make your own circuit tools
  • How to use our 3D printer - mostly our Dremel Idea Builder

After getting used to the tools you will know how to create your own hardware projects.

You will then create an awesome final project. At the moment we tend to give you the task of creating modules for a modular pinball machine, but that might change if we - or you - have an even awesomer idea for a final project.
(It will at least either use the above mentioned tools or will make life easier for the user of these tools (as a kind of more software centric project)).
