Which sort? - Royal Institution Christmas Lectures 2014: Lecture 1: The Light Bulb Moment (51:20 jellies) Lecture 2: Making Contact (4:30 sensor glove; 25:00 hologram; 32:00 VR demo; 38:00 hologram 2; 48:30 ultrasonics; 53:00 taste) Lecture 3: A New Revolution (13:00 drum; 21:30 bass guitar; 36:00 robot playing keyboard; 41:20 pixel bots; 49:00 drones) For next seminar Think about the following questions: - Why has the maker movement become so popular over the last ten years? - Provide an overview of prominent microprocessors and microcontrollers, outlining their advantages and disadvantages.
COM 101 Lab Demonstration: Cable - Clip leads - how useful are they (but no substitute for soldering)! - Make a cable with the things you've brought along. - If you haven't got the stuff, go and get it. COM 101 Lab Demonstration: Circuit Bending demo 1 (Laying on of hands) - Circuit bending - Taking apart the toy. - Circuit sniffing - The laying on of hands - Tickling clocks - Hacking clocks - NB Keep documentation, particularly photographs and video. Resistance - Resistance simulation - Resistor chart - Make resistance video introduction - Potentiometers - (Multimeter) For next lab - For next lab, bring in components for the amplification and synth on a chip tasks.
