As a final result the vest in presentation stage.
The improvements where:
- The vest has an incredible nice lining now, so we can really wear it without getting entangled in the electronics.
- The center big LED is glowing nicely and reacting if there is an exoplanet entered (by using the wii remote inside the felted Kepler Space Telescope) which is habitable.
- The Liquid Crystal use their backlight to indicate which exoplanet is habitable (by blinking)
- On the concept side: the vest is now a means to adopt exoplanets to make them less lonely.
- There still is no page for inserting your names to adopt an exoplanet
For the rest working with the Raspberry Pi in this crowded environment proved difficult: it became slow, and we had to use a list of exoplanet which was already downloaded (making it less updatable).
Thanks to the team!!!:
