This is our end of UK pilot scheme competition entry from the Cambridge event back in January 2012.


Built and coded by myself (Chris Stubbs) and Dom Taglialvore, students of The Sandon School 6th Form.


The casing is made from vacuum formed acrylic and uses the standard FEZ Spider board.


Graphics are at first drawn to memory before being displayed on the screen to help prevent flickering.


The Gadgesketch lets you draw an image using the two potentiometers, then save it to an SD card to share.


Microsoft have taken the gadget over the USA to show their colleges an example of what school students have been making.

What a great project. Do you have any pics of the inside for the mounting of the pots and Spider?

Hi Chris,


The Gadgesketch has indeed been a hit everywhere it's been shown.  Thanks for sharing it!

Hi guys! Thanks for all the great feedback!


HughB - Most of the components were mounted using masking tape becuase we didnt want to destroy them with hot glue! The pots were simply screwed to a short length of wood to keep them striaght then pressed into the holes.


 


Code is now hosted on my site at http://www.chris-stubbs.co.uk/projects.php?id=6


 


Thanks


Chris Stubbs
