I’ve been thinking of making a pair of Terminator Glasses for a while now; basically I was thinking of having the red eye behind the glasses that would move around as the wearer looks about.
I was looking around for a good LED platform to use when I came across Pimoroni’s very handy looking 5×5 RGB LED matrix, so I got it purchased and got to work.
- Have a pair of glasses with the iconic terminator red eye.
- Have the eye move when the glasses are moved in a direction.
So it turns out I may have been wrong about much of the below (as I thought) The user ‘eivind’ on Hackster left me a comment pointing me to This video which probably explains things better than I did.
I’m still trying to get my head around it all.
This is a bit of a weird one and I’m almost definitely going to get some concepts wrong here so bear with me.
I was reading up about Quantum Physics the other day, trying to make any sense of it at all and I got to The Uncertainty principle – which is essentially (from my limited understanding) where any quantum particle (wave?) measured is affected by the equipment used to measure it.
So basically whatever you try and measure you affect and so cannot get an accurate measurement of.
I don’t understand it fully, so what better time to try and make a project about it, right?
You can also catch this on my Hackster.
- Make an device that when closed has a certain output that can’t be seen, based on a value from an environmental sensor
- Ensure that when opened and attempted to be measured the sensor input is changed and thus the output is changed
