Class Number: 16254
Day & Time: Wednesday 1:40PM – 5:30PM

Using a keyboard and mouse is not how we interact with each other in the real world, so why do we still use these archaic tools to communicate with our machines? In this course we will be focusing on how we can design physical interfaces and use microprocessors like the Arduino, along with sensors, motors, knobs, switches, cameras, etc. to allow humans to more naturally interact with digital and physical installations.

No prerequisite required.
