Zo, ik heb mn halve er op zitten…

Een (halve) marathon lopen is een hele uitdaging. Morgen is de Enschede Marathon. Die laat ik aan mij voorbij gaan. Een erg leuk alternatief is om zelf een rondje in het buitengebied te lopen: geen drukte, een stuk minder asfalt en prachtige natuur om van te genieten. Vanmorgen liep ik bijgaande route van 20,3km op … Continue reading Zo, ik heb mn halve er op zitten…

Workshop Idea Generation with LittleBits

Monday I give a Littlebits-workshop for students doing a project on “Design for Specific Users”. We are going to practice building small, interactive circuits. Aim is to investigate design possibilities in the idea phase of the design process and quickly try-out different directions for idea’s. Students are encouraged to experiment freely by building circuits, mixing inputs … Continue reading Workshop Idea Generation with LittleBits

Build a distance-sensor with LittleBits

By utilizing the Arduino-bit and the Proto-bit, all kinds of electronic circuits and components can be connected to a Littlebits circuit. In this example, we connect an Ultrasonic sensor to the Arduino-bit with the Proto-bit. The distance measured by the Ultrasonic sensor will be displayed on the Number-bit. This example is based on the Bat … Continue reading Build a distance-sensor with LittleBits

Embodied interaction with LittleBits

Tomorrow I give a Littlebits-workshop for students following the course “Embodied interaction”. We are going to build small, sensory action-reaction type of circuits which are worn by the participants. Aim is that every participant has an output and an input-circuit on his/her body. While walking around, the circuits may trigger reactions on the other participants output circuits. … Continue reading Embodied interaction with LittleBits

Add RFID identification to a Java application

If you have an RFID reader module attached to your computer (via a USB serial connection) you can read RFID data from a Java application. For instance, you can use the unique id (Card UID) to identify something or someone. You can learn how to build you own RFID reader here. To use serial communication in … Continue reading Add RFID identification to a Java application
