Last week, I wrote a story on Kate Hartman’s Soft Circuits Class at NYU’s ITP) program. I was also teaching at ITP this summer, leading a class called Introduction to Physical Computing. Intro to Phys Comp, as it’s called for short, is a class where students are taught to make basic circuits and to use the Arduino microcontroller. While the class doesn’t concentrate on soft circuits, more students have been making them as innovative flexible conductive materials have become increasingly available. I thought I’d share a fun soft circuit project that came out of my Intro to Phys Comp class by Shirley Palma, who is currently working towards her masters in Computer Science at NYU.
