Getting Started

  1. Buy the Arduino Uno Ultimate Starter Kit ($55 on Amazon, or purchase elsewhere)
  2. Install the Arduino IDE (Arduino 1.0.5) on your laptop
  3. Read this short, prescient article written by Mark Weiser in 1996 on ubiquitous computing: Weiser_OpenHouse
  4. Reflect on lecture and the Weiser article. Is there value in a digital, electronically-enabled landscape? What opportunities do you see? What cautions? Be prepared to discuss in Week 2 (9/5).
  5. Bring your laptop to class on 9/5
