Tuesdays and Thursdays are usually really “chill” or in other words very open and flexible. This Tuesday was like most in that sense. When I came in I worked continued to develop ideas in the form of sketches to be able to have a visual aid at our Tuesday project meeting. I worked on thinking through what a new environment would look like for our discordant and partially discordant teleportation testing. Some of the ideas I have so far are a museum space, art gallery or central park theme. I really took the central park theme and ran, I’m not sure why that one stood out most but I made a small map of that idea and annotated it with my key ideas. I also drew up some concepts for the avatar interface. One has a tool to be able measure distance with a tape measure like feature on the ground as a shadow of the teleportation pointer.
We had a hiking adventure at Ledges State Park. It was really fun and I am glad I went. Boca (Abby’s doggo) even came along to keep all company and doubled as our protector dog.
Wednesday was mostly a MCA project day. I am developing a 3D printed architecture model that can be snapped together. Examples of some applications could be a module that snaps to other modules creating a building system or a building model that splits into horizontal or vertical section cuts to see interior components. I am struggling quite a bit on designing the snap connectors or finding snap connectors that could work on OpenSCAD. We shall see how it turns out.
Hats off to another day,
