Third prototype

Monday the 20th of October, we started on our third prototype. This prototype is made out of MDF wood and is the basis for a soon to be designed final prototype. We hope the wooden prototype will outperform the paper and cardboard prototypes because of it’s increased strength and precision. We also hope that by using wood, the light leakage is minimized. Finally we want to increase the consistency of the measurements by using a dedicated webcam. In this way no light leakage will occur when pressed against a smartphone or laptop camera.
Another thing that might be worth investigating is the effect of removing the infrared filter in the webcam.
