Working on the Portfolio

The website design is done and I am slowly adding contents to it. The project is done with some minor refinement added which is the reminder and reset system. During the exhibition, I will be able to present the interactions, alert and reset functions. Overall, I am very satisfied with my project outcome and love the design of my portfolio website! Looking forward to the up-coming virtual exhibition on Discord.

New demo video

I have also made a new live-demo after the refinement, presenting the buzzer and reset function with the painting. This will be uploaded on my portfolio website.

Final touch up

The sound sensor is securely attached to the painting now and I have used a powerpack to for powering up the Arduino so that the painting does not need laptop at the side to operate. For the exhibition, to show the reminder and reset function, I have adjusted to trigger the buzzer after 20 seconds of inactivity (no breath detected) and reset after the buzzer rings for 5 seconds. The original setting is, remind to exercise after 2 hours of inactivity and the painting will reset after buzzer rings for 5 seconds. Once reset, the user can redo the exercise again. As it is recommended to do 3-4 times a day, the lights will stay on for 2 hours after the exercise is done. This will prevent the user from over-exercising. After 2 hours. the buzzer will ring to tell the user it is going to reset and ready for next round of breathing exercise!

I love how everything is neat and portable behind the canvas now!
