UX I/O: Prototyping Interactive Objects Workshop

Adaptive Path Experience Designers Scott Sullivan and Evi K. Hui are teaching this workshop August 16-17, 2014 at our Design Studio on Pier 1 next to the Ferry Building. Click here to register for this workshop. Workshop Details: As we are integrating digital capabilities in to our physical environment, the tools of designers are beginning to shift. In order to understand and prototype these new experiences, a new technological skill set is needed. This two day workshop will give you foundational knowledge of Processing, a programming language for Designers and Artists, as well as Arduino, an open-source electronics prototyping platform. We’ll focus on programming fundamentals as well as creating dynamic physical prototypes to elicit meaningful feedback from the people who will encounter your work. This workshop is designed to give people with absolutely no coding skills a kick-start in open source technologies. The biggest thing that you’ll walk away with is the ability to create your own ideas and a deeper understanding of the materiality of on and off-screen digital products. The second biggest thing you’ll walk away with is our Arduino prototyping kit! Items you will receive in the kit (yours to keep!): Arduino Uno – R3 6′ USB Cable for Arduino Breadboard 6″ jumper wires (10) 10K Ohm resistors (4) Super bright white LEDs (5) Momentary push button switch 10K trimpot potentiometer Ultrasonic range finder Passive infrared sensor (PIR) Custom laser cut Adaptive Path breadboard plate Adaptive Path Physical Prototyping...
