Increasingly we find computational capabilities embedded in our built environment. Design of computationally enhanced objects and places is an attractive and motivating activity that requires multidisciplinary learning and cooperation: it attracts artists,musicians, and architects as well as computer scientists and engineers.
This course offers students an opportunity to collaboratively explore Physical Computing while designing and building a smart / reactive environment.
This offers us the opportunity to see how a wide range of people approach the topic, lets us loosely explore topics of interest, and feeds new ideas into our research lab.
Several projects from this course are listed on our site. They are the Memory Box, Interactive Book, Laser Space, and the Alphabet Paint Space.
