This is my first time trying to combine ICM and Pcomp together. My partner is Melanie Hoff, and we had a very glad time working together today.
Our goal is to combine P5.JS code with Arduino digital input by using a switch to control the media effect on a screen. We made brainstorm and got many ideas. I came up with an idea that we could use a hand-made switch combined with the code I programed yesterday, a bubble popping up effect, to make it looks like people using brainwave to control the bubbles on the screen. And we decided to do that.
Melanie connected circuits, and I combined Arduino code with P5.JS code, and We together made the hand-made switch. The code is embed at the bottom of this blog. We made two iron rings connected with power and ground respectively, and a a conductive tape hidden in hair . People put the rings on their index fingers and touch two ends of the conductive tape to close the switch. I also tell people to make a sizzle in their mouse.
