Hello, so this is going to be a little glimpse into the thoughts and things around some projects. Right now I'm exploring the topic of atmosphere and how objects within the home can influence it. Hope you enjoy 

Flowing Lights

A lot of my time this week had been taken up with refining the interaction of how the lights behaved with one and other. although these lights are still connected, the aim is to have three wirelessly connected lights which behave in the same manner as the one shown above - but that will be for another week.

My coding skills are progressing but still very much a novice.  I had described my struggle to others like so: "coding is like being asked to cook a risotto... but you don't know what the concept of food is". despite this, however, I'm learning... slowly. So to achieve this effect I have to give credit to a friend Will who massively helped with this development in coding.

What the GIF doesn't show is how each object has been assigned different temperatures of light (measured in Kelvin) and the relationship between the lights, some being faster whilst others are more mellow. These will be shown in due course.
