So basically, I have two take-home tests to look forward to, the first of which is to arrive in my e-mail tonight, a term paper due for the 8th, a final project due the 19th, and a critique on The Man With The Twisted Lip
that I have to do over. I'm not worried about Music or French because those are my easiest classes so far and I have a ridiculously high grade in Music. (No bragging intended, I swear)
My major quandary is my animation final.
It's not animation per se
, but rather an exercise in physical computing and interactivity. I found some cool projects in Instructables.com and I'm torn between the simple piano soft-circuit keyboard
and an LED light setup that syncs to music
. For the piano, I wasn't planning on going too fancy and just basically replicating the project, maybe adding a few more notes if I got the code right, since the basic project just has basic notes without sharps or flats. The LED sync project, on the other hand, sort of gave me the stupid idea of making tiny Portal turrets (out of clay, maybe?) and sticking red LEDs into them, then making them sync to "Still Alive". And the instructables themselves aren't that hard to understand; hell, I could even get the circuit diagram in one of them eve though I barely passed Computer Siences.
So I have no idea.
has a similar problem in her hands, so she's welcoming suggestions.
