[INTRO2PCOMP] WK7 RHYTHM & WATER

RHYTHM & WATER

A. IDEATION
I and Michelle Hessel wanted to do something with water. So, we thought of using water, a container and sound. As we improve our idea, we concluded to use the water as the instrument. So we named it R&W(Rhythm & Water) like R&B(Rhythm & Blues).

B. EXECUTION
1. First, we started small. We used a recycle cup to test our hypothesis. We just used a simple one note. The result? It was not working. Water was not conductive enough to low voltage. So, we added some salt to make it more conductive. And it was successful.

2. Now we wanted big and more note. Michelle nicely brought her bowl and we tested on the bowl with multiple notes and multiple copper tapes. It was successful. Once the circuit was done, we moved on to the fabrication.

3. So, We needed an enclosure that houses Arduino and the bowl. I used the Intro to Fabrication experiences to make the enclosure. I used the machine saw, router, drill, etc.

4. As the enclosure was done, we combined them all and used the battery to make it working. Once it was working, we added LED lights, a name plate. Also Michelle improved the codes to adjust optimal tone.
