Meetup Challenges

This year 2019 all meetup members are encouraged to take part of a Take Home Project we named “A-Robots”.

As a part of a larger project that we are building together over the course of this year, every member is building their own creation. Based on each individuals coding knowledge and comfort with the technology, every member will progressively add and integrate step by step what we are learning in each workshop. This is not only designed to help every participant to grow their A-Frame knowledge but also drive active participation and collaboration within the meetup and everyone is following along with the workshop lesson plan.

Outlined below is the list of steps of the last months for any new members to catch up

The first step:

Need Inspiration? robot illustrations

The second step:
  1. Cheerful / Happy
  2. Charmed / In Love
  3. Amused / Laughing
  4. Surprised / Shocked
  5. Sad / Dissapointed
  6. Angry / Unhappy

Tip: You can achieve this expressions by looking into facial impressions, body posture, or other creative ways, maybe even words on a screen, sign or speaking bubble.
Research how Pixar, Disney, Dreamworks and other creators are applying emotional cues to inanimate objects. Subtle works.

Need Inspiration? robot emotion illustrations

The third step:

Tip: Think about movie posters, it doesn’t have to be complicated.

The forth step:

Tip: Use the shader to visualize engine thrusters, magic powers or emotional cues
