Description

Before there were video games, there were electronic toys that were physical interfaces used to control technology through microcontrollers, switches, sensors, LED lights, speakers and motors. Today, this same technology is utilized in countless networked devices ranging from traffic light controllers to refrigerators to pacemakers through the "Internet of Things!" In this studio, participants will learn about and experiment with the world of physical computing through the building of classic electronic toys and robotic devices.
