Beyond the Joystick: Introduction to Alternative Physical Interfaces @ eyebeam.org

This workshop led by Eyebeam Fellow Kaho Abe is for artists, designers and hobbyists interested in starting to think about and explore alternative physical interfaces that can be used in games, toys or interactive art projects.

Thinking beyond the traditional screen, keyboard and mouse interface, as well as the traditional gaming controller, we will utilize tools including the Arduino development system, simple low-tech switches and sensors to create custom physical interfaces to enhance the user experience. And later on in the workshop, we will learn about combining Processing with the Arduino for a richer experience.

This Tuesday workshop series will consist of 6 workshop sessions. Students can sign up for whatever workshop is of interest for $40 each, or register for the entire series for $200 ($40 discount). Note: workshops will become increasingly more advanced along the course of the series. Those who have never worked with physical computing are welcome, however please make sure the prerequisite is satisfied before coming to the workshop.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
