SparkleLab: Widget Makers @ Parsons, Ariel writes –
I am teaching a new class at Parsons School of Design. SparkleLab: Widget Makers is similar to a your standard physical computing class. We cover basic electronics and microcontrollers with Arduino. But, instead of thinking up some contraption to make, we will create relatively simple devices. The focus will be on making a solid and pleasing prototype with a refined interaction design.
DIY design electronics kit – Harness the power of the electron! Create games, toys, and contraptions with these fundamental components. Follow the easy instructions to make a light detector, LED flasher, noisemaker and more! Once you master the basics, you’ll be ready to create your own! Everything you need to get started is right in the box, including switches, buttons, diodes, capacitors. transistors and regulators. Learn the amazing concepts of resistance, capacitance, voltage and current with the step-by-step project manual. Soon, you will be the electronics wizard! Great introduction to electronics for all ages. By Sparkle Labs.
