Electronics and Interactivity I
If you’ve ever wanted to experiment with robotics, to make a video that “knows” when someone is watching it, or build a sculpture that beeps when you touch it, this is the course for you. In this course, students will construct several electronics projects that illustrate the possibilities of physical computing, and to provide students with tools for further exploration. Using Max/MSP/Jitter we will build custom electronics and program these microcontrollers to create strange and meaningful forms of interaction. Note: No prior programming or soldering experience is required, but an interest in accessing your inner mad scientist is a must.
