Peek into the pedagogy.

Harmony Village partnership, a new development sought to improve the harmony between humans and pets. These students aimed to create a new way to give back a dog's independence. They created a Dog Collar that could lead a pet back to their home, by smart phone. This would ignite the laser attached to the collar to lead the pet home. According to research, a dog will treat the laser as prey making it an effective way to lead it back home.
As part of the Swarm Robotics week long studio at Kelvinside Academy in Glasgow, Scotland, these students explored the idea of swarm light painting. Patterned movements were informed by environmental stimuli, in this case, color.
A more efficient mobile way to enjoy all your picnicing needs.

Adaptive Clothing studio gave birth to fan girls! A response to Florida weather. They created an RC powered wearable that would cool you down in the warmer seasons, adding flare to any ordinary outfit.
Demo of working prototype exploring different ways different animals see. A potentiometer controlled which animal's sight one was experiencing. It changed the position of servos of the Robot Arm which was coded in Arduino and also switched between several webcam filters which was coded in Processing. Students: Tyler Kendrick and Monica Zhang
With a Publix Supermarket partnership, students wanted to make shopping fun so they created an AR Shopping Cart which activated the Pacman to eat when it interacted with fruit. To showcase the idea we used Unity and Vuforia to create a AR tracker, then connected Unity to an Arduino to take in values from a photoresistor. When the photoresistor is covered it would activate the eating animation. When connecting it all to the projector to project back onto the surface, to our surprise this created an AR infinity mirror.
Demonstration of the AR Infinity Mirror. For video CLICK HERE.
