GHC Submission

We spent the past few weeks working and revising our paper for the Grace Hopper Conference. We placed in edits that our advisor gave us as well changed a lot of the wording. We got a bit confused on the …

Grace Hopper Paper

A lot of these past few weeks have been spent on moving to the new lab and working on the Grace Hopper Poster call. We decided not to do the student research competition since it would be hard to split …

Circuits and Resistors

In the past few weeks, we’ve worked more on the design and gathered more materials. Miranda has made a simple design example with the EL wire and we’re figuring out how to make the design a bit more rigid. We’re …

New Materials

It’s a new semester now so we’ve all been really busy getting settled into classes and getting projects going again. At the end of last semester, Miranda was able to make a few parts to test the flex sensor with …

Code and Designs

Break has officially started for us so I will be gone for the next two weeks. Since I can’t update during that time, I’ll make up for it now. We’ve started a very simple Arduino code that will give us …

Parts and Diagrams

We had our fall break about a week ago, but since then, we’ve met and are getting ready to move forward. Miranda and Swamy went out last week to buy more fabric and parts to build the first prototype with. …

Design and Electronics

For the past two weeks, we’ve really been trying to come up with a good design for the EL wire to move the project forward. Our advisor talked to a physical therapist who gave us a lot of good insight to the …

Physical Therapy Exercises

After coming back from the WISH workshop, we’ve really started to talk about the design and circuitry needed for building the prototype. Miranda is involved more with the fabrics and design of the device. On the other hand, I’m going …

WISH conference

Just this weekend, Miranda and I went to Washington D.C. with some other members of the WII lab to go to the WISH workshop held by AMIA. Our paper was accepted there and we printed the final version of our …

Practicing with Arduino

A lot of these past two weeks (and probably next week) is focused on the WISH conference that we’ll be going to in two weeks. We’re creating our poster to present at the conference in Washington D.C. We’re focusing on …
