Students will:

  • get familiar with techniques and technologies allowing them to create interactive systems that work outside, or along with the classical mouse-keyboard-and-screen paradigm.

For that, the students will:

  • be able to identify the sensors, actuators and microcontrollers needed for a system
  • use sensors, actuators and microcontrollers for prototypes of various levels of fidelity
  • put together prototypes in a hands-on manner.

Kursens huvudsakliga innehåll


  • interaction with physical objects. Elements of industrial design
  • state of the art "tangible" devices, giveaway sensor projects
  • other physical forms of interaction: e.g. haptics, eye tracking, two-hand interaction, feet interaction, dance.


  • recap of electronic circuit basics, including resistors, capacitors and LEDs
  • sensors and actuators for various destinations, built with various technologies
  • prototyping interactive installations with Phidgets
  • simple microcontrollers: BASIC Stamp, Arduino
  • communicating with a computer or with another installation
  • elements of advanced microcontrollers, wireless sensor networks
  • elements of augmented reality.
