Physical Computing Models
The starting point of physical computing is to get a light to switch on/off. Then to read a switch and get it to control the light. We then move onto motors and controlling vehicles.
But I think we need to come up with a lot more machine models that we can use for physical computing.
And the devices should appeal to girl programmers as much as boys!
I’m looking for volunteers to come up with working designs of physical computing devices.
The designs need to be easy to physically make – cardboard/LEGO/K’nex are the front runners here.
But also, 3D printable (No tight tolerances involved) would be great as if schools don’t have printers – they probably know a parent or a nearby school that could help out with that.
If you’ve got ideas let us know
If you got the means to develop and implement and idea – then let us know
If you can do both – then what are you waiting for 🙂
