Hello, I have recently become a member of the Lansing Maker Network. Some of you might know me from the tour I took a while ago, my name is Mary Peacock and I am a sculpture graduate student at Michigan State University. I am currently working on my thesis project and could use help on it. I’m building a Robot/ Kinetic Sculpture, and having problems creating a program for the piece. I wanted to use the Arduino, but my knowledge of it is beginners’ level. It would be fantastic if there was someone who could come in and work with me on developing the program. I’m hoping that someone might be able to meet with me once a week for a couple hours.
What I would like the Robot/ Kinetic Sculpture to do:
- Arm movement and waist
-The arm will go down pick up a toy, move up, hip will turn, hand will release toy into a basket, waist will turn, and the sequence will start up again.
I would also like to add 5 mins. worth of sound.
All of this will be activated by a motion sensor.
I have made a life size maquette from card board and dowel rods. I have pictures. I could really use the help please.
