update on our project.
I need to re-print my astronaut on the 3D printer. It came out as tall as my forearm… and that’s a little too big for the Surface ^_^;;;
I think we’re done… I think. We’ve got information on the planets, and you can press anywhere on the screen and text shows up depending on where you press. We were all in charge of a planet, so I did Mercury. I had all this information, but I ended up using only half of it because it was just too complicated and technical. I guess that’s the problem with astronomy, there’s so much information and it’s so cool, but if you’re a little kid it just goes over your head. I hope we did justice in our project.
I guess the other thing that was a little hard was… how to show images without suddenly cluttering the screen. We don’t have any videos, but I remember that was one of the things people mentioned we should put in. We did have some pretty awesome animated gifs, but we had a hard time putting those in as well.
If I could… I’d like to work more on this. Figure out how to make it nicer looking and put in more content. All in all though, I’m impressed with what we’ve done.
