Final Project: Fidget Cube

Materials: SparkFun ProMicro microcontroller Rocker switch (2) Thumb joystick Button pad 2×2 LilyPad Vibe Board Transfer ball bearing SparkFun thumb joystick breakout Process: In order to have really intuitive, responsive inputs and outputs, I started by brainstorming different possibilities, and also researching different components that would provide feedback just to get ideas. Below is my brainstorm

Lab 8: Serial Communication

For this lab, we worked on making the Processing IDE and Arduino IDE “shake hands” through serial communication. The first part of it was to create an environment in which the Arduino could read and and write data from two potentiometers (or other analog sensors of some kind). Next, we set up our Processing code to
