For my Physical Computing final, I have two potential ideas:
1. “One Track Mind”
One-track mind is a turntable, with an RC car set atop it. The car and turntable would be moving in opposite directions, at the same velocity, so that the car would stay in the same place on the turntable while it spins. The car and turntable would be in communication with one another through Bluetooth. The interactive, and most difficult part, of this project, would be a potentiometer that would change the speed of the turntable and car simultaneously. I am also considering integrating some sort of LED into the turntable that can help delineate what speeds the turntable/car has reached. I may have the RC car look like a brain.
2. Title TBD
This project would utilize the portable EEG reader NeuroSky, or a more affordable model (pending feedback) to halt the perpetual motion of an RC car. For this project, I would definitely try to make the car look like a brain.
