Aberdeen Workshop

October 28, 2009matt.rattoevents1

On September 7, 2009 there was a three day workshop held at the University of Aberdeen entitled Design Anthropology: Understanding, Utility and Engagement. The workshop focused on anthropological methodology and how it can be of use to professionals in other fields of research. It emphasized collaboration in developing what design anthropology can offer to other disciplines as well as creating a new educational program at Aberdeen. I discussed critical making during Making Things 1 on the first day at 2:30 PM. Here are some photos from the workshop as well as the instructions and code from the Origami Tagger.

Here are the instructions for the origami tagger:

Here is the code for the Origami Tagger:

#include <Servo.h>
#include <IRremote.h> ////the library assigns pin 3 to the IR LED

Servo myservo;  // create servo object to control a servo
int pos = 1;    // variable to store the servo position
int IR_power = 12;    //set pin 12 to power IR receiver without breadboard
IRrecv irrecv(7);
IRsend irsend;
decode_results results;

void setup() {
myservo.attach(9);  // attaches the servo on pin 9 to the servo object
pinMode(IR_power, OUTPUT);
digitalWrite(IR_power, HIGH);     //set this HIGH to power IR Receiver
irrecv.enableIRIn(); // Start the receiver
Serial.begin(9600);
Serial.println(“Origami Tagger started!”);
}

void loop() {
if(button.isPressed()){
//for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++) {
irsend.sendSony(0xa90, 12); // Sony TV power code
delay(200);
//}
}
myservo.write(pos);

if (irrecv.decode(&results)) {
Serial.println(results.value);
/* Uncomment for more specific remote control
if (results.value>0) {
pos=pos+30;
Serial.print(“Pos”);
Serial.println(pos);
if (pos>180) {
pos=1;
}
} */
pos=pos+30;
Serial.print(“Pos”);
Serial.println(pos);
if (pos>180) {
pos=1;
}
delay(100);
irrecv.resume(); // Receive the next value
}
}
