Merry Christmas 2011!
Hansel and Gretel are kicked out of the house by their evil stepmom, who’s hogging all the limited food supply. She claims they need to get their street smarts up to par, being there’s a zombie apocalypse going down in the streets.
Hansel and Gretel make their way back home once, after being abandoned in the city, by following a trail of ammo they left. The second time, however, they ran out of ammo because they were led too far into the city.
Lost, a tall woman in rich furs offers them a delicious pizza in the middle of Times Square, and invites them in to her place to stay, where she promises warmth and food.
Her “home” is the New York Public Library. Though it’s gated off, she has the key that lets them in.
She then forces books upon books upon books into their brains– she’s actually a zombie, see, and the smarter the brain, the better the taste.
Decapitation via guillotine is her method of getting to her victims’ brains. But, the book-smart kids learn how to use such a contraption and turn the tables against her when her creepy zombie self tries to kill them.
Victorious, they make their way back home, where they find their evil stepmom has died of obesity. They live happily ever after!
These were made for Lisa Keene’s Visual Development class. I updated Hansel and Gretel to a NYC zombie apocalypse setting, where the witch is zombie that wants to eat their brains… Only after beefing them up by forcing them to read books from the NY Public Library, which is her home.

CAT’s motor purrs when the petting sensor is being pet, and it meows back (in the Serial Monitor) when it hears you meowing at it!
C.A.T., or Cuddly Arduinic Therapist, is my project in Interface for Music & Media class.
What the– you’re building a cat?
Yes, an Arduino-powered one at that! One that won’t cause allergies or disgust its owner with hairballs. Petting CAT will make it react positively, purring at 50Hz (a healing frequency), giving the same benefit as a real animal. This is achieved through conductive thread/fabric and a vibrating motor. Many more surprises are to come; new Arduino shields and other fun parts will be in my mailbox soon! I’ll get some video up during the week, along with a few design/layout paintings too 🙂
