Inspiration

Tinkering with new technology led to the idea to use what I had learned to make a party dog.

What it does

Uses touch input to pick one of four patterns and color schemes for the light up head to display

How I built it

After tinkering with the assorted electronics I grabbed I eventually learned how to hook them all up and program them in python. All that was left was to design a fun case and application for it.

Challenges I ran into

3D printed shell became not feasible, lack of team attendance, unfamiliarity with language and hardware. Personal power supply output not ideal for original portable idea.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I got it to work. It looks cool. It plays music. I did it.

What I learned

How to work with a raspberry pi, new cardboard techniques.

What's next for Party B.O.R.K

Gonna party until it needs to be disassembled.
