This week Nick (our teacher in Tangible Interactions) introduced us to Arduino.  What is Arduino, you say? Well, this is how the developers put it:

Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for anyone making interactive projects.

I have learned some electronics, and my father is kind of proud of me (he is an engineer in electronics). The GIF shows my knowledge at this point, I know how to get lights to blink the way I want (almost) and make a button do something. Haha. We’ll see where this goes. My brain tends to get a bit confused with coding (yes, we have to code the instructions) and technical stuff.
