More Progress…

I ended up just getting a pre-made display hand when I realized how little of it would actually be showing. 

I’ve also finally finished knitting the glove!

My final round of supplies were ordered and arrived, so even though I’m a lot farther behind than I’d like, there does appear to be a light at the end of the tunnel…


Further Project Updates

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve had much of a chance to make any updates about my project’s progress. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been plenty busy, but I guess just too busy to keep up on posts like I should have.

Supplies List for Project

There are three main components of this project: the gloves (along with separate “finger covers”), the GSR detector, and the LED array.

Timeline for Project Execution

Nov. 2nd- Finalize which type of sensor I’m going to use; get feedback about knitting patterns and what kind of materials I should use; think about possible implications/concepts behind various types of glove patterns

Nov. 3rd- Have electronics supplies ordered

Nov. 9th- Have all supplies known at present bought, except for LEDs; have swatch of knitting completed; have a glove pattern decided on and acquired and knitting on the main gauntlet started; if possible (if supplies arrive) have circuit ready for testing on a breadboard; determine number and kind of LEDs needed; start thinking about display

Nov. 16th- Have circuit ready for testing; have finger “sleeves” finished being knit and test conductivity; more progress on main gauntlets; have programming/processing with the Arduino underway; have display method decided on; order flora and LEDs

Nov. 23rd- Keep working on everything

Nov. 24th- Eat lots of turkey

Nov. 30th- Have all knitting completed; have all testing completed, programming/processing completed, and all circuits ready to be “installed” into gloves; have LED attachment to gloves underway; determine size that the photos for display should be

Dec. 6th- Have gloves completed; document gloves in action; get photos printed

Dec. 7th- Gloves completed; display completed, including photo documentation of gloves in action
