The Task: In a class called Understanding Networkith Professor Thom Igoe at ITP, the students exchanged theprojec proposals among students. The aim is to learn REST API and understand the Internet of Thing's My partner, Moon and I opted a physical toy manipulated by mobile phone.
Our solution: Due to the time constraints that we had to finish to create the working prototype in two weeks, we decided to make the product with solenoids.
The Technologies: Arduino Yun - prototyping wireless objects, Heroke -hosting the server, Solenoids - hitting the maze, plate from the bottom to allow the users to play and manipulate the object.
Our User interface design that maps the solenoids' positions.
At the class, we learned the importance of using appropriate protocols as a designer. The diagram shows how system design.
