MM 622 - Physical Prototyping
Explore interactivity with physical objects. Study of the process of designing interactive prototypes, both autonomous and networked. Students use various tools, including simple scripting, 3D printing and microcontrollers, to create prototypes and then test and refine them.
Prerequisites: MM 621.
Co-requisites: MM 602.
Equivalent Quarter Course: MM 6110.
Possible Instructional Methods: Entirely On-ground.
Grading: A-F grading only.
Student Learning Outcomes - Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:
- Analyze and describe physical interfaces.
- Envision and design meaningful physical interactions with objects and the built environment.
- Demonstrate technical proficiency in creating devices, installations, and environments using a programmed single-board computer, sensors, actuators, and indicators.
- Utilize 3D modeling software and printers to fabricate small objects to professional standards.
- Understand paradigms, conventions, and metaphors of recent physical interaction design practice.
- Demonstrate familiarity with basic concepts of industrial design.
- Engage emerging tangible and environmental technologies and incorporate them into their design practice.
