Some Very Vague Final Project Concepts

  • Some sort of projection where you enter areas sounds are played or lights are lit through an arduino

  • Buttons that control some a game that utilizes sound like a video game

  • Gear wall that controls sound utilizing light sensors

  • Other ideas that my partner (T) might have?

I’ll elaborate on the gear wall because this is something that i’ve been wanting to do for a while and have been close to doing, but never actually finished or started. I previously used light sensors to turn on and off LED lights and control speaker sounds. Each light sensor corresponded to a notch on a wheel that had different cut outs so that the “rhythm” of all the speakers would be a little different. I also previously created a gear box that would be used as a table top “fidget toy”. I feel like this project might be to ambitious in terms of size but not ambitious enough in terms of hardware, so I’m not entirely sure if I want to use this as my final project.
