Project description online

Are you full of crazy ideas? But no clue about electronics? Or how to run sensors and motors? How to write code for an Arduino? The goal of the class was to build a strange machine and learn all about it. In one semester with no previous knowledge, starting from scratch student's expanded their knowledge from developing a circuit to having fun while programming. They built machines have feelings; machines that can jump, cry, burp, animate, observe, love and even explode.

Feel free to play with them. Everything should be explored, touched and tested. Small and big children are welcome.
