The one week Designing Interaction with Electronics workshop by Michihito Mizutani is held yearly at the Media Lab Helsinki. The highly popular course is every year fully booked by the students of Taik. More info can be found from the course description page and the course website http://mlab.taik.fi/paja. During the workshop week we experimented with Arduino boards, schematic plans and different kinds sensors. Together with Anusha Iyer we started with tangible communication as we were both interested in communication issues of people with disabilities. We came up with two quick prototypes: the Braille Machine and Squeeze to Say Hello!.
