P-Comp // Wings!

This week Luna and I paired up for our Serial Communication assignment to make a pair of wings in P5.js that are controlled by a photoresistor:

It was a little tricky to get all the moving parts to work together (especially linking the serial port to our sketch), but Luna drew out the wings, I mapped out their up and down motion using a variable in P5, and we tackled mapping the wings’ path to the photoresistor / arduino together.

I also made a fading circle with the potentiometer 🙂

This feels like a breakthrough in physical computing for me because I’m finally able to incorporate digital content with these sensors, and I’ve never made anything on screen that’s truly interactive like this!
