Choose one of your augmented interface ideas from last week’s post to prototype and develop in class beginning next week and due the following week on September 25. Consider this prototype as a working proof of concept, which does not necessarily need to use finishing materials, but does need to contain a working circuit. Create a sketch outlining your plan. Describe it and post to the blog.

Make a list of materials you will need. Gather as many materials as possible and bring them to class next week.
