Exhibit F Hits the News!

Exhibit F hit the newspaper today with a little positive exposure. Erin Fitzgerald from the West Carleton Review interviewed the team a few weeks ago and the article was published in this week's issue of the local paper. Great to get some press! Thanks Erin!

it was also picked up by the Perth Courier

Video Interactives III

While Eric was tied up with video editing, I started wiring up the first video interactive unit. I had to teach myself how to connect components, power LEDs, crimp wire and other new skills in order to make everything work...

First mock-up with scavenged wires, keypad and DV-66. While Eric worked on formatting the videos, I began learning how to wire LEDs to a power source, connecting TVs with periphery and other electronic experiments. Having never done anything like this, I welcomed the chance to try new things and work my way through a problem until it was solved.

Custom wiring job...Using scavenged wire, a few connectors, and some trial and error I wired up a power source for the LEDs using a variable voltage AC/DC Adapter at 1.5V. It resembles a bird's nest, but I made sure to colour code each switch with all of its 4 connectors. I also tried to tidy things up with some zip ties and electrical tape.

Once the LEDs, switches and video were all working, I began switching a few settings on the player to achieve the best result for the viewer.

Within the 'guts' of the DV-66, there are 6 dip switches which can be toggled on or off to control aspect ratio, repeat mode and more. Read your manuals!

Final mock-up of first video interactive. All switches, video and LEDs are working. This unit will be partially disassembled and installed in-situ.
