Hummingbird

Hello this is my post for Hummingbird.

 

The Dr Seuss Hummingbird Challenge

What type of creature might you create?

What variables might you consider?

 

  • Can your creature move? How? When? How much? How fast?
  • Does it make a sound? What sound? When? For how long?
  • What does it look like? Does it change colours? When?

 

My initial goal is to create Jight Wolb in a Light Bulb that uses hummingbird to make a great, fun and amazing experience!

 

Here are the parts, purposes and complexities of my design:

This is the first iteration of my creatures system:

The parts which were the most challenging was trying to code the LEDs and motors to work. This screencast wouldn’t work but basically I was saying that my vibration motor would work and then it wouldn’t. It was not consistent

 

I was able to get these working by making it so It just vibrates all the time instead of just when you touch it

 

 

The second iteration of my creature’s system is so I will change it so I will take the sensor out

 

 

Here are the parts, purposes and complexities of the additions to my design:

 

 

This is the second iteration of my creature’s system:

 

Here’s a screen snip of my code. The code was challenging because again it was not consistent but it worked out well. I also changed it to tri coloured LED

 

I was able to get these working by getting help from a friend that had done it and also keeping the code on when it worked so I wouldn’t have to try again.

 

This is a short film of my learning journey throughout this project:
