the fritzing project is an attempt to develop a visual software for designing pcbs in physical computing. some of the arduino guys were there: massimo banzi, david mellis and tom igoe. i presented some projects of me and my students and described the way how we are working with arduino. due to the short time of the semester my students are using only breadboards instead of pcbs. this also enables an incremental and try&error learning process. tom igoe’s statement about the lack of women in physical computing was not present in my documentation and also some others.
wednesday i was invited to speak at gameplaces talk in frankfurt. i showed some game related projects of my students. the connection between experimental interface design and new game interfaces was quite promising.
