17/12/2015 – Finish Prototyping

Today we finished the prototyping of the scorpion! The upper and bottom shells were milled and thermoformed. Also the tail end was thermoformed. Some video’s: CLIP0075 CLIP0077

23/11/2015 – Testing 3D-Printed Tail Mechanism

CLIP0535 The video above shows the printed parts with an elastic. The system works but some things need to be changed: – Diameter of the holes for the rope should change (a bit bigger), because right now it is not more »

24/10/2015 – Prototyping Tail Mechanism V2

This time, smaller elastics were used in order to get a more realistic shape. The tail looks more finished, but it should be better if the elastics are really hidden. It’s still not really possible to pull the rope and more »

22/10/2015 – Prototyping Tail Mechanism

We prototyped some foam segments of the scorpion tail to test the mechanism and possibilities. We saw that also sidewards control of the tail is possible and a minimum friction for the ropes is necessary! More tests are coming soon… more »

22/10/2015 – Cardboard Prototype (size)

This evening we made a quick & dirty prototype to estimate the size of the elements of the tail. With the results in mind, we can make a quick foam model to test some mechanisms. Video in the link below: more »

Prototyping

We made some prototypes of different shapes of devices that could do the tasks we want it to do… Based on an old telephone/cup… Chronometer-like design: Pattern study: Balls/Stripes/Dots… How to wear it? Feedback LED: Pen: Go over a barcode more »

Prototyping

      Deze week startten we met prototypen. We bedachten een haalbare techniek om ons concept te realiseren, dit moet gebeuren binnen de twee weken. Daarvoor werd het concept tot in de details uitgediept, want het uitschuif/uitdraaisysteem moest echt werken. more »

Prototyping “Le P’tie Chef” : assembling

1 . Placing the magnets en screws in the interlayers to turn the pepper mill in 5 stands. The position in the stands will be recognized by the encoder. The hot melt is just for protection, because of the sharp more »

Prototyping Skweezees: Slipcover

The whole piece of wool, electrodes, cable and foam will be covered by a last layer of material to make the Skweezee objects washable/hygienic, soft and nice to handle. This cover material will be removable from the foamy-Skweezee-with-tail to be more »

Prototyping Skweezees: insulation of the wool

We choose PU-foam because it is easy to cut patterns out of it and sewing these together is also relatively easy. It holds the wool and electrodes together, it is a relatively lightweight and an elastic material. Finally, the foam more »

Prototyping Skweezees: Electrodepatches

We will use ethernet-cable because it has 8 wires inside and it already has a cover/protection for these wires as well. The separate wires are a bit stiff but movable enough for our concept (they will be inside the Skweezee, more »

Prototyping Skweezees: felting

We decided to design 3 different shaped Skweezees from which each one can be used for multiple activities to be trained.                 Because felting made the wool to stay longer in the formed more »
