Working on lasercutting the cover of the story cup (name to be decided) and had some maths help from Ben Long for calculating the dimensions for a cone covering which was much harder than expected!
Earlier this week I tried out sewing small RFID buttons into (and onto) a test fabric quilt. The aim is to create a musical blanket that can be used for storytelling. The ‘electronic cup’ shown on the right can read the tags and play preassigned passages of music when you hover over one of the buttons.
We are currently playing with a variety of different size and shapes RFID tags to investigate the limitations and usage scenarios – results of this to come …..
I’ve been playing around with RFID readers and tags for the StoryScope, and have got it all down to a small enough size to fit in a cup. This is a quick prototype to test the concept, and a version that uses less insulation tape to hold it together will be along soon!
