IMS 253 Building Interactive Objects (3)

Building Interactive Objects lays the skills groundwork for creating physical prototypes of interactive objects. The course will provide familiarity with varied materials and methods of working with them, providing a vocabulary for designing physical objects, as well as many points of departure for future exploration. Basic interactive electronics will be introduced. We will execute small projects in wood, paper and plastic, using hand tools, power tools and digital rapid prototyping equipment, along the way discussing the strengths and limitations of each in relation to the others.
