How great would it be if our lamps understood what we were saying?Or if the teddy bear we tucked in at night nudged us awake in the morning? Or if we made an electronic drum set out of the abandoned potatoes rotting in the closet?
In the “Hacking Everyday Objects” workshop series we are “hacking” objects that we use in our daily lives. In the course of twelve hours, we will learn about production technologies, coding, and basic electronic circuitry. After this, we’ll use the new techniques we’ve learned to “hack” and digitize the objects we’ve picked, turning them into something other than what we’re used to.
08.01.2019 Tuesday – The concept of hacking; developing new ideas through brainstorming and bodystorming and an introduction to prototyping.
10.01.2018 Thursday – Digital and physical prototyping techniques: sensors and interaction
15.01.2018 Tuesday – Feedback on the objects you’ve brought in, the process of hacking and design.
22.10.2018 Tuesday – Finishing the hacking process, process presentation and exhibition.
