Environments Final Project Update 1

Of the two possible routes I could take for my final project, option 1 being complete my first project involving the K20 police haptic hoodie, or creating a public voting system, I chose the latter.

Technological Progress:

I was able to setup a node.js server that uses Johnny-Five, Socket.io, and the Arduino standard Firmata sketch.

Node is used to setup and run a local running server on my computer. Using Johnny-five and javascript I was able to capture button presses and represent them in yes/no bar graphs.

next steps:

build large button pads.

Create a LAN network so people on the same newschool network can access the webpage and submit comparisons for others to vote on.

Criteria for success:
I will consider this project successful if I can deploy it near elevators and waiting students interact with the installation.
