Matt will introduce participants to Sketch Tools, a robust toolset that allows relative technical novices to experiment, ideate, and prototype with Phidgets RFID, sensors, Flash, networks, and more. Participants will have an opportunity to work together to sketch, design, and build prototypes using a variety of hardware and software kits. In addition, Matt will demo some cutting-edge mobile sketching platforms, as well as some past projects.
Space is limited. Register today for this workshop.
