Tinkering is over . . . Lame!

I can’t believe how fast the semester went, but it is over now. I wish I could have spent more time on my projects for this class, though now I have more time to start on other maker projects like this one or maybe trying to build a full scale R2-D2.  Well I want to thank […]

I can’t believe how fast the semester went, but it is over now. I wish I could have spent more time on my projects for this class, though now I have more time to start on other maker projects like this one or maybe trying to build a full scale R2-D2.  Well I want to thank everyone in the class and Rosemary for all the fun that I had this semester in Tinkering.  Well bye for now, if I end up making anything cool I will be sure to post some pictures here.  Till next time.

Troubleshooting the D20

So, I can get the d20 to power up.  It boots the Trinket Pro and goes through the program and announces “Greetings, Adventurer!”.  That tells me the power, code, sound files, sound board, amplifier card, speaker, and the Trinket Pro are working just fine.  But, when rolled,nothing is announced.  That’s where the accelerometer is supposed […]

Soldering The D20

    Before soldering, the instructions recommended reaming out the mounting holes on the circuit boards because they are going to be screwed into the die halves with pan-head machine screws, which is a little unorthodox for this type of project. I had never used a tap and die tool before so it was neat […]

Grand Finale

The end has come! ヽ( ・∀・)ノ Yes. I finished the dress. In my last post  my dress was about 1/3 of the way completed. No lights. No details. Just form. Continuing from that point, I first created the skirt section of the dress. Using  this tutorial I created three separate skirts, which I ended up forming two skirts […]

The end has come! ヽ( ・∀・)ノ

Now with 90% more glitter!

 

Yes. I finished the dress.

In my last post  my dress was about 1/3 of the way completed. No lights. No details. Just form.

Continuing from that point, I first created the skirt section of the dress. Using  this tutorial I created three separate skirts, which I ended up forming two skirts with (Confusing I know but just keep reading). The first skirt is formed using two sheer fabrics. One was a sort of translucent off white and the other was glitter. Continue reading "Grand Finale"

A.K.A. How I Landed A Critical Hit With My d20 In a week or so, I’ll have my second Bachelor’s degree.  It’s in Computer Science.  Last semester I finished a minor in Geospatial Analysis and earned my certificate after defending my thesis.  My first Bachelor’s degree was in biology and I’ve enjoyed an interesting career […]
