Uni Blog 2018

Hello, so this is a little glimpse into the thoughts and things around my final major project from university (over a year ago). The aim of the blog was explore the topic of atmosphere and how objects within the home can influence it. Feels like a million years ago I started this but anyway, 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.
