Class Notes (I genuinely love code)

Variables in code 

byte [0 to 255]
int [-32000 to 32000]
long [-2 billion something to +2 billion something]
float [decimals usually]
char [letters and stuff]


Honestly I live for for loops like so much. They give me life.

Final project proposal

I have been stressing over what I was going to do for this project for a while. 4 months to be exact, but I think I've found an answer in my two favorite pass-times, being lazy and watching YouTube videos. Whilst on one of my notorious sleeping and video watching binges I saw a video where the man known as William Osman created a "robotic arm" using moisture sensors as its main source of control. he designed this project for a friend who had recently broken their arm but I saw potential in the use of moisture sensors as a form of input no matter how unreliable they may be in this situation. this wasn't my first idea for a new form of input though. The original plan was to find a way to reduce wrist pain in my hands when using a mouse for long periods of time. I wanted to devise a glove that would allow the user to control they're computer without ever having to touch a mouse. in my mind it looked kind of like a power glove or something I don't know but honestly I really just wanted to use the moisture sensors. This other lame project would require like flex sensors and maybe some buttons and I really wouldn't know how to do it so we got the moisture sensor fun time 2 button hands free mouse.

Wet Wear Poster

"Catalyst is a productivity system. It helps you start things and forces you to finish them. Everything starts here"

I have a problem with productivity so if I could have any body mod or device t help me it would be something that forces me to be productive. The idea is that this would be prescribed and programed by a licensed "catalyst" professional or doctor. you could learn to operate it yourself but it is not recommended. The way I navigate sci-fi is very different than the way I feel most people do. I tend to use it as a way to express my individuality and otherness. Others tend to do this as well but on a more global since asking what's wrong with the world rather than what's wrong with me. I guess I'm just tragically narcissistic in that way.

Class Notes 8/29/18

Class notes:

using ohm's law we can figure out how much amperage/ resistance/ or voltage is being used in a circuit. it is represented by a triangle that shows V/I*R. Open circuit? you could put a switch there.

      circuit is a continuous path for electricity and current

      open circuits are breaks in those paths

      short circuits are when power connects directly to ground. or highest potential to lowest potential.

      Power is "usually" coded red on the bread board

T package LEDS usually come In Red Yellow or Green and operate on 3v and 20mA. this is why we need a resistor. LEDs are polar meaning they control the flow of current. This is important because they can shut down the whole circuit. The short leg of the LED or the Flat spot or the bit thats bigger inside the lens is the negative leg.

tactical media.

ICT internet communication technology. books on this medium is the massage Marshall McLuhan. He theorizes that the medium  changes what you say. Every medium has it's limitations.

Weekly update

Basic LED circuit

Surprisingly I had a few problems with hooking this up. First things first I have to remember that the LEDs are polar. Second for some reason  the only way this circuit works for me is if the LED is connected directly to power or separated by another row? The problem was both legs of the LED being connected on the same row of the breadboard; connecting both ends to power which just doesn't work.

words of the week: Iris aperture. techno-utopists.

Ok so I woke up at 4:52 to get to class on time this morning the bus comes at like 5:45 I miss it by 2 minutes and I need to catch this other bus or the earliest time I can get to class is 8:15. I run to this second bus stop to make in time and I get there well before the bus arrives. She looks at me shakes her head and passes me. Tragic I know I just had to vent

Hello World

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
    printf("Hello World");

    return 0;
