I have made a lot of progress in creating my project so far, and I estimate that I will need about a week to complete it. For more details about the project, please see my design review post.
The main components of the project can be broken down into: 1) creating the plushie Rick figure, 2) designing the lighting layout and affixing it to the figure, and 3) programming the lights and doing the circuitry calculations and work.
What remains on the list to complete the project:
- I am nearly finished with the Rick figure, having sewn together the head and body fabric patterns. I still need to create the hair, and stuff the figure. ( 5 hours)
- I have prototyped the lighting layout, and think I have a good design. Otherwise, I need to attach the lighting elements to the figure. (5 hours)
- I have already created a good amount of code to run the lights, and I am still working making sound reactive programs. ( 3 hours)
I am planning to finish up these main components of the project by April 14th, leaving me about a week to take care of any final improvements.
