Combine your outside superpowers (skills and interests that you haven’t utilized in this class yet) with the learning from this weekend to produce a unique haptic feedback prototype for an intended application. You can draw on your coding abilities, hardware prowess, fabrication mastery, etc. In your documentation, be sure to indicate what your intended application is as well as what was the focus of your prototyping activities. Capture the experience of the haptic feedback a
Group: Anita Mbabazi, Arnav Wagh, Alexandra Lopez Assignment: Your task is to work as a group to test and/or develop a particular type of haptic feedback and to provide your findings in a physical form to be experienced by the class. This can be a deeper dive into the work we’ve done already with vibrating motors or a branching out into alternative approaches to haptic feedback.

Group: Anita Mbabazi, Dan Owen, Alexandra Lopez Assignment: In this experiment we branch out into using multiple vibration motors. The purpose of this is to generate sensations that travel across the an area of the body or simultaneously stimulate multiple locations on the skin. To connect and control multiple motors you use (3) digital or analog output pins on the Arduino.
Group: Anita Mbabazi, Dan Owen, Alexandra Lopez Assignment:This experiment introduces a new part – the haptic motor driver. This board and the associated library provide over 100 effects for the vibrating motor allowing for more sophisticated behavior with less programming. Download the Arduino library and try the “Basic” example. 1- Open the Serial Monitor so that you can read the numbers of the effects as you feel them. Write down the numbers of the ones that interest you.
Group: Anita Mbabazi, Dan Owen, Alexandra Lopez Assignment: The purpose of this experiment is to explore the possibilities of a single vibration motor controlled by an Arduino. 1- Upload the “Blink” example to your Arduino. Using alligator clips and wires, connect the vibrating motor to the appropriate Arduino output pin, as you would an LED except without the resistor. For our purposes it does not matter which lead of the motor is attached to the output pin or which is conn
