2019-08-29 (Th) PillarGame

Eventually, this project will switch from an over-engineered clock to a hackathon project centered around gamifying the lighted pillar. The hackathon will be a twelve-hour event and turning this into a game, possibly a multi-player game, will take a team. My job will be "sound engineer" and "the guy who keeps the pillar operating when things break."

We had the second meeting for the team, the whole team this time, which included one of my coworkers, Angeliki, one of her coworkers and a mutual friend and former teammate. Also, a former hackathon rival.
Crew meeting

At the meeting, we had multiple sets of hands, which made it a simple task to hold an LED strip against the tube and wrap it evenly. Our designer decided on the spacing between light helixes, which was a problem I was hesitant to tackle. I also learned that I will need a longer PVC pipe for the final build.
Evenly spaced lines for light strip helixes

We kept track of what everyone was supposed to do next and on top of finishing the project, I will be adding an enclosure around the base where people can rest controllers, and it should keep people from tripping over everything.
