The Department of Digital Arts at Pratt Institute has an unexpected opening for a physical computing instructor. Classes begin January 14th. Please find a course description below. DDA 587: Robotics and physical computing systems engage with the real world through sensory inputs and electro-mechanical outputs driven by controller devices. The Arduino platform provides an integrated hardware/software environment that enables artists to develop works which can respond to and affect the environment in ways beyond what a standard computer interface can offer. This course provides an in-depth introduction to the fundamental principles behind such devices, a comprehensive survey of the various ways to connect with the physical world, and an overview of the programming language used to design and implement control systems.
