This week I partnered with Ben and Tim to create a little game. Tim has purchased a set of joysticks that he plans to use for the final project and we decided to test them out as variable sensors and with that produce a processing display on screen. What we ended up doing is using the monitor feature in the Arduino environment to make a “love meter.” Each joystick had a different value and when you touched them you could see a live result on screen. It could read “indifferent” or “adorable” depending on how you moved the joysticks.
You can see a small video of the results here: http://itp.nyu.edu/~ts1200/Pcomp/Week3Lab/PcompLab3.mov
Here is a picture taken on the computer as we are working.
