Project Archives

A collection of videos from past projects related to robotics, interactive art, and programming.

Filmed and documented by professor Max Kazemzadeh 

Location: Washburn Arts Building @ Gallaudet University

Face Recognition System with Arrays using professors faces. 

Inspired by the upcoming of Snapchat facial detection filters at the time. I was driven to create something similar. With the use of Processing3 and JavaScript with extensive research on open sourced facial detection programs, and paying close attention in programming classes this project became possible. The Idea was to have a professors face appear on your face when you stepped in front of the camera. Later I messed around with "sprites" and randomization, which changed up the idea to having a confetti of professors faces explode from your face as you walked and moved around the camera. This was created and filmed during the mid-term exhibition in the Fall of 2016.

Remote Controlled Radar Robot w/Arduino & Processing

The "Sonar Bot" was completed in 3-4 hours from scratch. Using Arduino to program the hardware and Processing3 software to create the radar effect on screen. A joystick was used to control the wheels and direction of the robot. 

The red lines seen on screen are pings the ultrasonic sensor has picked up on using an echo (similar to how a bat uses echolocation).

Tracking & Data Visualization

Skateboarding Tracking & Data Visualization Course Project 2 (Spring 2015) that uses Photoresistor (light sensor) with multiple LEDs and a Motor rigged to a skateboard that reacts to changing light values either on the ground surface or from other environmental factors. With Project 2, students learning how build and customize an interactive hardware system that attaches to an object that moves through space and responds to a changing environment, and therefore changing data that generates different with technologies appearing as physical output on the skateboard. 
Project 2 prepares students for the complexity in the final project which requires students to use Gyroscopic Sensor with Arduino to control Graphics in Processing Via Bluetooth. Students learned Arduino and Processing and how to use a 10 DOF (Degrees Of Freedom) Gyroscopic Chip with Bluetooth to transmit data from the roll, pitch, yaw, altitude, temperature, and more from the skateboard.
