This week we combined our Arduino and P5. The labs gave me a lot of difficulty at first. I had multiple issues from P5 freezing or quitting unexpectingly to the graphing lab not working because I didn’t plug in the wires but the most frustrating thing about this lab is that it will work and then suddenly not work. By that, I mean that I was able to get the graphing lab to work (see video below) then I would simply close the window to rerun the program and it would not work. Is this due to the delay in the arduino? Does it need to be longer?
I tried to be a little more ambitious and connect my ICM assignment this week with this assignment. The original P5 looks like the below video. I tried to change the first slider which changes the x value of the bezier and creates a different type of “wing.”
Here is my code and my video of the application in use is:
I ran out of time to do this but I wanted to add a second potentiometer to control the y-values. Would I be able to do this by using the same Arduino code and just adding a second variable or would I have to do something in addition?
