Gone so Long - General Overview/Update - Details to Come Soon!

Hi Everyone,



I am sorry I have not posted for so long. Winter break at Arizona State University happened, during which I took a brief hiatus from Leonard (the wearer was out of town) - once we got back, we were slammed just to get done for the show - blah, blah, blah, I'm sorry. Leonard has been on the fast track to success. Here are some pictures of him:

I made a few documentation videos outlining Leonard at this point. The three videos are as follows:



1. Putting Everything Together: Shawn tries on Leonard and I describe the next steps we will take to make Leonard wearable





2. Leonard's Head: I describe construction of the head…

Leonard has a skin! (And it's green and furry)

The continuation of the DOME (aka - Leonard's head)

So two weeks ago we took our cardboard model and began rebuilding it with the foam. To our surprise, this wasn't quite as hard as we had expected. We figured that some modifications might need to be made in order to compensate for the extra inch of thickness not accounted for with the cardboard; however, this was not the case. (yay!) Here is a super speedy video documenting the process of building the top portion of the dome and the lower jaw.



WARNING: This looks much more productive… Continue

Leonard Mock-Up

This Monday a bunch of us got together and started to design Leonard's head. We will be making the head out of dense foam, but we started with a cardboard model connected with duct tape. (cheap and easy) Here are some pictures from our workshop meeting...









Our plan is to make a giant dome for the top of the head and a separate jaw that… Continue

1st Blog for the Miditron Wireless Competition

Hello fellow dance-techers! This is my first official blog for the miditron wireless project I will be working on the next six months-ish. I hope to post more than once a month with small updates, images, and video – so keep an eye out for it. To start, I thought that I would give you an overview of the project and how it fits into a larger piece currently under construction. This first blog will be a bit lengthy, but I’m hoping to keep future blogs shorter with more pictures and… Continue
