My students’ first Arduino projects

I’m teaching in the MFA Products of Design program at SVA here in New York City, and my students just finished their very first Arduino projects. Students were assigned descriptors and objects at random, like “paper craft” and “kitchen utensil.” You can follow our class blog if you’d like to keep up to date on their future projects. The video above is Richard’s junk mail iPod dock.
