Robotics: Useless Machine

Define My first idea: This only used one linkage, so I decided to make a more advanced one. Second idea: This one was quite creative but difficult to make. Thus, I decided to come up with other idea. Last idea: I decided to go with this idae since it is not only easy to make … Continue reading »

Computer Science: Encryption

How does it work? I created my own encrypting method in this project rather than copying other existed encryptions. As I like mathematics, I utilized the Unicode of characters a lot. For example, the Unicode of A is 65. There are mainly three creative encrypting systems in my encryption. Primes Encryption Squares Encryption Even-Odd Encryption   … Continue reading »

My Final Product   Procedures & Challenges The main key of my product is the star trail background. I initially thought two ways to demonstrate this star trail. The first method is using forward(0): set the biggest circle by forward(0) and decrement the pensize with a random color through iteration. The problem of the first … Continue reading »

Computer Science Blog # 3

Inspiration   Plan Since the main focus of my inspiration is the stars’ circular movement with the origin of the polar star, called star trail, I will focus on making a detail star trail. Moreover, I will try to add other objects such as mountain and the rock, which can describe a nature place. Star … Continue reading »

Robotics Blog Post

 Image of your inspiration     Description of the primitive shapes or sketches.     I wanted to make a special spaceship for this project. The typical spaceships that we always observe are pipe shapes and the corn at the top. Since I don’t like following the norms, I decided to make an unusual rocket. … Continue reading »

Computer Blog Post #2: Remake with Adjustment

My remake   Original Turtle Art Adjustment Even though this task is simply to remake the original turtle art, I tried my best to add my own ideas. As a result, I coded everything except a glacier and a snow background. There are specifically four adjustments from the original turtle art: a color of snow … Continue reading »

Computer Science Blog # 1: Analyzing the Turtle Art

My chosen turtle art Based on my first inspection, I thought it is mostly made by iteration to randomize the size and the position of falling snows and the ices (at the bottom). In addition, the increment of the shade of ices and snows was impressive since darker snows and ices really look further away … Continue reading »

Blogpost #4: Reflect and Share

Final Product: Flashlight powered by our hand               Details     Video   How it works : The main idea here is the concept of the thermoelectric generator and piezoelectric generator. The thermoelectric generator produces the energy by the difference of temperature. If one side is heated and another … Continue reading »

Blogpost #2: Develop and Plan

Design 1: Piezo motor Skate Board Plan First day(Thursday): find all materials. check whether Piezoelectric disc works or not. Second day(Monday): finish making one Piezo wheel of two wheels and testing whether this wheel generates energy or not. Third day(Wednesday): build another wheel and connect those two wheels into pipe and bearing. build the structure with … Continue reading »
