The gallery below contains pages from my sketchbook filled during day one of Devices of Perception. They include course grading breakdown, several references to electromechanical artists, our basic parts list, an introduction to symbols, and several basic circuits.
The video below shows the function of the second circuit we assembled: three LEDs in series.The four videos below demonstrate the operation of the astable 555 timer, each uses a different capacitor resulting in varied on/off timing. When attached to a speaker the astable 555 timer can produce a beat for making sweet, sweet music. Saturday, June 7, 2014 The gallery below contains pages from my sketchbook filled during day two. They include an ink conductivity test, the diagram for the monostable 555 timer, and some notes on switches.
The video below demonstrates the operation of a monostable 555 timer with a 4.7uF capacitor and a 1 Mega-ohm resistor.Sunday, June 8, 2014 The gallery below contains pages from my sketchbook filled during day three. They include an introduction to the first homework assignment, a few video references, the diagram for an H-Bridge, and a sneak peek at some project thoughts.
Assignment 1: Lady and the Tramp
Tired of eating alone? Does it make you sad? "Lady and the Tramp" doesn't solve your problems, but it does help you wallow in self-pity. When you pick up your silverware to start eating, romantic music plays and a black and white video of yourself keeps you company, or at least lets you watch yourself crying into your frozen lasagna.The diagrams in the gallery below show how it works, so anyone can put it together and salt their lonely food with their own lonely tears.
