I had fun a couple weeks back helping review student work for Barry Kudrowitz’s Toy Product Design course at the University of Minnesota. Looking forward to seeing which toys the teams pick to refine for their final projects.
A week ago Monday I did a guest lecture on Arduino for Marc Swackhamer and Neil Olszewski’s graduate architecture course on bio-inspired design. It was an awesome experience–lots of bright and enthusiastic minds. We followed the lecture up with a studio on Wednesday, and later today I will be assisting with reviews. Many thanks to Marc for letting me participate in this inspiring process.
I tried to remain as faithful as possible to the original, but some things were just not going to translate directly—the footers, for instance. The best solution I was able to arrive at for the footers takes away some of the elegance of the original, but given the limits of the platform I don’t think it’s all that bad.
There are still some bugs to squash and lipstick to be applied, but it’s basically usable as-is.
