leave a comment »

This we week we will examine the idea of embodiment and how it realtes to the development of interactive works.

Readings are posted to blackboard.  One has lots of pictures, the other is online — please look at them both before class.

Sample code will be up this afternoon.

Technology this week will explore scaling values from sensors.  You HAVE to be able to connect your arduino to processing for this.  IF you have not tried to do so –I suggest you get to work tonight and figure it out.  Last time I checking in class more than a third of you had not even tried it yet!
