How might we… create something whimsical that entertains users?

Coding - Prototyping - Sensors - Arduino - Raspberry Pi - Accelerated Learning



The panopticon senses your presence it turns towards you and watches you. Depending on the changes in light in its environment the iris will also dilate or contract. This project integrates machine elements with simple feedback control systems, in which a variety of sensors and actuators are connected to Arduino and Raspberry Pi.


The brief was to create something 'whimsical' that interacts with the user. Duration of time from ideation to creation was 4 weeks, alongside other projects.



My work was mainly focused on Arduino, Raspberry Pi and circuitry of the Panopticon, alongside adding to the ideation and problem solving aspects throughout the project.
