About my blog

The aim of the ITD course (ID4220) at the Delft University of Technology is to provide Design For Interaction Master students with in-depth theoretical and practical interaction design knowledge to help develop future products based on user-product social interaction. ITD proceeds through a sequence of iterations focusing on various aspects of the brief and the design, and culminates in an experiential prototype.

This blog is managed by Walter A. Aprile: please write if you have questions.



De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

Do you want to tag yourself at the moment?

 :roll:Stepping into final phase, I bet you all want to share your feelings.


 😳 nervous? XX( exaus exhausted? := excited?

We start first! 

   . . .  . . .


Here is the short updatet about taGGing 3 work progress. 

Movie Making: 

1. This scenario is only for presenting our concept, we need to intergrate the design process in.
For instance, our roles, the iterations, how users react on the product, etc.
Therefore,  openning should be changed slightly.
2. We still need a warm ending for the movie, to be specific, a nice slogan.
Next steps: make detail plan for movie shooting& making and start shooting.

Prototype Making:

We have make a 3D model in Rhino of the shape, and at the same time it is the framework for the technical components.
First the plan was to mill it with the aid of the CNC-milling machine, so we could check the shape, sizes and closing mechanism. However due to long queues for the machine, we decided to immediately send it to the 3D-printer at IO to print the final version of the prototype. Some final adjustments will be made and then it is ready to send. 



Plan A:  make the Tegg wireless. 

What we need is:1. the Arduino Schizo with XBee and Accelerometer  2. the combined DC/DC converter and TLC5940 

Good news is that they have now all arrived. The only problem is that maybe  the type of XBee is incorrect and that there are not enough connectors for XBee to PC. 

Plan B is always after Plan A:  the Tegg with wires

All needed components already arrived two weeks ago: accelerometer, the TLC5940, light sensors. 

We are now in the middle of programming the idividual parts. Light sensors, accelerometer and XBee have already been explored. The challenge of today is to program the TLC5940 fully for our prototype. 

Next Step: assemble the whole program and make it funtional!
