Week4 Zoom meeting

In week4, Lorna had an online meeting with us to give answers to our confusions about the changes of our physical computing teaching plan. Our confusions mainly focus on how can we build our project individually at home without tools like saws, laser cutter, etc and what scale our individual project should be compared with group project. Lorna gave us accurate and patient response, which can help us make a plan for the rest time of this semester.

Week4 Group meeting

After the Zoom meeting, we conduct a group meeting focus on our current idea and prepared for the presentation of next week. In the previous meeting we conducted last week, we have already decide our idea, which is a creative learning game for teenagers to help them learn coding in a more enthusiastic way. So in order to help the audience understand our idea in the presentation next week, we communicated about the structure of our slides and divided the work.

After a long time discussion, we decided to make our slides according to the structure below:

  • Introduction of project and team in general
  • Team’s name:BEE BEAR LION
  • Background:Problems solving
  • Inspirations:Chessboard at CES 2019
  • Purpose
  • Target Audience
  • Concept
  • Storyboard
  • Plan
  • Prototype/Bodystorming

The body storming part was assigned to Bowen, and the other three group members's task is making the presentation slides. The part I should make in the slide is about our concept and story board. Finally I have to make a video to combine all our works into one video and upload it to the youtube list.

We also prepared three questions at the last page of our slides, these three questions are all about technical problems:

  • How to make the character move and turn right/left?
  • How to make the camera detect the QR code (Marker) and translate it into code in our computer?
  • Which programming language can help us control the movement of robots? Can we use Javascript?
