Rapid prototyping for music, art and design work

Introduction to Designing Interaction with Electronics worksho at Media Lab Helsinki

The purpose of Interaction Design with Electronic workshop is an “intensive hands on” workshop to learn how to turn your idea into a real physical object using electronics and microcontrollers.
 These tools and techniques will be useful for rapid prototyping in physical interaction design and/ or installation work.

The course provides a journey of design process from developing concepts to prototyping interactions. During the course, students learn how to build prototypes using software programming and electronic assembling. After a theme is given, students will work on developing concepts within groups and planning for prototypes. Actual prototyping experience consists of two phases. The students will be asked to present their work in progress after the first phase. Feedback from guests and other audiences should be applied to the second. The final prototypes will be presented in Demoday in the Media Lab.

These video are from some of students’ final presentations at the previous workshops.
