Connecting Our World - a hands on Workshop

Teaser: 
Creating fun interfaces using the Scratch picoboards and home made sensors
Presenter: 
Margaret Low
Co-presenter: 
Andrew Sula
Thomas Preece
Samantha Edwards
Summary: 

This workshop will give participants the opportunity to build physical interfaces using a wide range of materials and calibrate them to enhance the existing capabilities of the Scratch Picoboard. The presenters will introduce some sample applications to demonstrate the possibilities for integrating sensors with Scratch. One example will include an interpretation of the popular Bop It game where you can use the homemade interface to Tilt It, Twist It, Bop It and Bend It to score points on a Scratch game. During the workshop the participants will have the opportunity to build their own sensor games and explore ideas for future applications.
