NEW MEETING TIME!!! THURSDAY AT 7 PM!!! ACM OFFICE!!
COME JOIN US!!
For the rest of the semester, we will be doing cool EMG stuff and going to talks and learning.
Also, if you want to become the chair of a Sig, the slot is open to the first interested person.
- We have a new member. His name is Bobak. Get Excited. He's a sophomore in BioE. Yay.
- We will continue working on the Whack-A-Mole game and the OpenEyes eye tracking system.
- Check out the links page for some cool articles.
Links to start learning about Python and Pygame:
- Get the latest version of Python. Python and Pygame are both installed on the csil and ews machines. Just type "python" in the command line.
- Awesome Python Documentation by Mike Steder, a U of I CS Alum.
- Simple Python Crash Course
- Pygame Example Tutorial (for once you know some Python)
- Full Pygame Documentation
- De-soldered board.
- Working on camera box.
- Discussed EMG design and Labview
- Talks to attend (See Events page).
- **Meeting times have been changed to every Monday at 6:30 p.m. in the ACM Office (right after the exec meetings)**
- Took inventory of EOH hardware; contacted companies for necessary supplies and direction on the Surface EMG device
Discussed year's activities
- Sit-in on relevant courses
- Visit university labs to see research
- Attend special lectures (i.e. Beckman, Bio-Psych talks)
- Smaller projects
- EOH project (possibly for Independent Study Credit)
- Discuss papers and external research
- Weissman is in Germany for the year. His positronic brain will be missed.
- Without Weissman, the fate of the EEG project is uncertain. There were a few electrical engineers who expressed interest in working on the EEG project tonight. If at least one of them joins, work can continute.
- We're also going to start a new project, which doesn't depend on the arcane knowledge of the Circuit-Makers. Take a look at Breve. We'll be using it to make creature simulations. Eventually we'll hold a creature design contest.
- John Hart confirmed that he can give a presentation on the hexapod robot. Unfortunately, the oversized cockroach has been in storage for a while, and may not work. We may have to be satisfied of videos from it's youth.
- Kevin Warwick is still uncertain whether he'll be doing research at UIUC or not. If he gets his grant money, he'll do a presentation for us in April.
- Meeting time has moved to Monday at 7pm, at least for next week. There we can decide what time is best for the group.
