CS 207 Building Interactive Gadgets

Our world is full of digital interactive gadgets, from GPS and cameras to remote controls, and garage door openers. Don't be content to buy what others have built, learn to build it yourself! Hack together digital art projects, wild interactive gizmos and sensor-driven robotic madness in CS 207: Building Interactive Gadgets.

As digital components become inexpensive and software platforms become accessible to all, a community has grown around the world: a community of makers and hackers, a community of engineers and artists. A community of people interested in how the world works and how to
create digital artifacts that work in the world.

CS 207 is an introduction to that community of people.
