Architectural Toys (in a grid of landscape sensors)

Hey Saki! Thanks for letting me jump onto the project. Here were today’s sketch notes on simplified object sensing (making a base of circuits and copper contacts). Page 4, spread 2 is the simplest form. Right now they sketch A) light circuit (boolean on and off based on memory),  B) a voltage in and four parallel ‘to ground’ circuits with different resistance to be able to tell the orientation of each architectural ‘chess’ piece. Look forward to testing contacts/orientation code for the single square/single ground plate… maybe talk about both memory feedback (lights up) but also immediate feedback (?tbd).

See if you can translate any of my handwriting (sorry):
