Spring 2015 (MI491), Spring 2016, Fall 2016, Fall 2017

This course aims to empower students to creatively design, develop and evaluate new experimental interaction devices by combining various sensors and microcontrollers, without requiring extensive prior knowledge in computer science or electrical engineering. The course provides students hands­-on experiences of interface design and development, including basics of sensor technologies for interaction devices, fundamental implementation skills for interface hardware and software, and user experience evaluation methodologies. Throughout the class, students will learn how to realize their imagination of novel interaction devices and evaluate their usability.
