So, we have a cape prototype finally. Making the cape was helpful in understanding the hardware, material and placement of the microcontroller, accelerometers, sleeves/gloves, and wires.
There were a few successes this week:
After this, we mapped the raw data coming in from Arduino to p5. This allowed us to see how the serial data would translate to the speed in p5.
The next step was going from the Uno to a smaller microcontroller. The next microcontroller I tried was the Arduino Mini paired with the BlueFruit.
