The models for all 3 of the main components have been completed (not yet rendered) and so I find it mos appropriate to share them here. The primary reason for designing the 3-D models is to improve the safety features of the overall interface as currently all the parts have exposed circuitry and some of the circuits are delivering dangerously high currents. The second reason for the development of the models is to provide aesthetically pleasing cases for the controller, glasses, and standalone light, as not many people enjoy looking at exposed circuitry. Below are some images of the cases I have designed for all of the main physical components of this project (they are not yet rendered, but I will update the images when I fully render them). For a detailed description of the designs, please check out the logs of each component.
Standalone Light Model:
In the midst of my AP exam preparation, I found some time to work on the 3D model for the watch, it is subject to change, namely placement of the screen and the type of charging port, but here is the image. I also have to work on the back cover as well as the case covering the ESP on the glasses and charger. All of the models that will be made and printed will only serve as cases for the circuitry (for aesthetics and safety purposes). The 3D .STP file link is below the image.
Got some time this week to work on the new circuit for the standalone lamp, so now the ESP and the standalone light are running on the same power supply. This makes the standalone light a lot easier to carry and work with.
Slim standalone light (without Li-Po ESP power supply):
The glasses, lamp, and remote have been fully assembled and programmed. The standalone lamp is bulky (due to its dependency on two power supplies from the AC adapter and the large Li-Po battery). High school exams coming up but I will try to spend some time and this upcoming week and change the lamp circuit so that it depends on only the AC adapter power supply.
