What I will do over the next 7 weeks to make my project.
Action: In this week I will need to make the lower part of the capsule. This will mean making the bottom piece, then adding the palette that the seat will be attached to and then attaching the seat. I will do this in the design lab using a drill. I will be using wood as the material.
Progress: I only finished about half of what I wanted to do this week. I’m struggling to find time at lunch time to work on project. I also I am getting used to using all the tools after a long time away from them.
Action: In this week I will building out the sides of the capsule, not including the door. I will also be doing this in the design lab with the wood and a drill. To end the week I will plan out how I will make the door.
Progress: Today I caught up from last year and have attached my seat to the base, now I need to get all the wood cut next week and get it drilled in. I’m struggling with making time to get into the design lab, so will be working with Mr. Heard & Mr. Petterson on a solution.
Action: In this week I will building the door which will make up the left side of the capsule as well as it’s roof. I will be using a clamp and a wood piece to make the roof that will open up.
Action: In this week I will be fitting the capsule with the LED lights and hooking them up to the Raspberry Pi electronics set up.
Action: In this week I will be fitting the capsule with the fans needed to simulate “wind”. I will also need to design the power system for them. I should also start planning how to house the heater.
Action: In this week I will have to follow my plan and house the heater inside of the capsule.
Action: For this final week I will need to fit the chair with the rumble motor that will be used to make the chair shake. I will also need work out how to power it.
For the rest of the time I should work on the finishing touches.
