A. Understanding the tech

  1. What are they? What do they do? On a conceptual level ? (abstraction)
  2. How do they work? What do they actually do? techically, explain the most common ways to "read" them.
  3. What can you do with them? What are the applications? (what are the current uses of this tech? from the most conventional to the bizarre, futuristic)

B. Possible Scenarios

Develop 5 scenarios (in sketches) in which your sensor could augment / enhance a field that is in our class:

  • Animation
  • Audiovisual Design
  • Autonomous Arts
  • Communication and Multimedia Design
  • Fashion
  • Graphic Design
  • Lifestyle
  • Product Design
  • Visual Arts Teacher
