During the last few weeks of this semester I was really able to spend some time with my equipment and experiment with many different configurations for my final project. I am excited to be taking this class again next semester, but I intend to utilize Thomas and the advanced students much more this time. Finding clear and concise explanations can be very difficult for technological issues. Having an instructor around to point out your small mistakes so that you stop making them is invaluable.
Expanding on my final project, I will be doing more research into the material graphene and how it can push my concept even further. My goal is to conceive of a way to incorporate vibration motors that respond to proximity sensors into the graphene material to form a suit. This suit could theoretically be worn by the visually impaired in order to give them more fluid mobility. When approaching a mass only the specific sensors affected by the location of the mass will be triggered, allowing the user to know where an object is without having to make contact with it. I will be fleshing this idea out more over break.
Overall, I feel I've learned some very valuable lessons this semester and am looking forward to expanding my skills next semester!
