The Post-Partisan Skeptic - Building a Machine for Political Jamming

Introduction: The Post-Partisan Skeptic - Building a Machine for Political Jamming

The Post-Partisan Skeptic is a DIY project born out of the beauty pageant that is the United States' current presidential race. It is an open source machine capable of doing real time fact checking, body language analysis, facial feature recognition, and infared processing.

Step 1:

After printing out the pattern, attach similarly labeled pieces by drilling the marked holes with a 7/16" drillbit and running zip-ties through the matching holes. 

Step 2:

Once you have the form of the helmet together, attach the Arduino as shown. 

Step 3:

Attach the potentiometer wherever. This is going to control the amount of skepticism that your machine operates on. A greater amount of skepticism will lead to more critical observations of statements and appearance. 

Step 4:

Attach the breadboard near the base of the neck. This is how all of the electronics will be connected.

Step 5:

Attach the IR LED projector. The software will automatically map the data to the corresponding candidates. It will be invisible to the naked eye but will appear in the televised broadcast. 

Step 6:

Insert the IR sensor, semi-transparent camera. This will feed all visual data into your system. 

Step 7:

Attach the wireless jammer near the IR LED projector. This will overwrite any nearby video feeds with a data free version of the event. Wire the electronics as shown. You're now prepared for any political activism or disruptive demonstrations that you're inclined to do!
