Weekly Update #1

1. An image or video (this could either be photograph of the current state of your work, a sketch, a diagram, etc)

Attached is the intended attachment direction that t I plan on incorporating into my design. Specifically, this shows how the fiber optics will connect to the LEDs.


2. A Listing of accomplishments made by all group members for the previous week

This week I finished cutting out the pattern pieces of my dress without the skyline. I was able to cut out the fabric pieces for the skirt which will allow me to plan out the city skyline later this week. I was also able to connect the pins to the trinket microcontroller which will then allow me to program my new code. Lastly, I downloaded a new arduino library which allows me to convert arduino programs to become readable by the adifruit boards.

3. A description of problems encountered and outstanding issues (highlight anything that you are looking for help on)

Some issues that came up this week was finding time to make a lot of progress with this project. Additionally, I have this irrational fear of starting a project with the fear that I might change my mind or mess up. So making the first cut with the material is always the hardest step for me. Now that I am passed that point I can start moving forward.

4. A plan for the next week of work

Finish cutting out and treat all of the pieces that will make up the dress, order the last bit of LEDs that I want to incorporate, and start to sketch out the city skyline and the fiber optic placements.
