    Ever wonder how it would feel if you could control "The Force"? Well, we've made that possible! ...Sort of. We've given you the ability to control a toy helicopter just by using the movements in your arms and body through the Kinect. The information from the Kinect is directed towards the helicopter through an IR emitter connected to an Arduino Uno. Throw that old remote control away!

    Taken together, we can no longer simply consider the GUI and WIMP interfaces as primary interaction models for computing. We must explore new spaces of interaction that are, in part, enabled by the above three points.
    Note: this is the first ever offering of this course and, as a result, things will be rather experimental. In addition, the course is not currently an MS or PhD comps (qualifying) course for CS graduate students. It can serve as an elective, however.
    Hi Ian, this is Jon!!!!
    Will this cause a conflict?

    Course Scoping and Prerequisites
    There will be a bit of everything in this class and I will be trying to push on the theme of tangible interactive computing and the future of HCI. We will be working with Arduino, sensors, Kinects, and AR.Drones. I hope to also cover some simple signal processing and machine learning and toolkits like OpenFrameworks and Weka.
    ...
    Programming experience required. This is a computer science course. I am happy to see enrollment from Mechanical Engineering, the iSchool, and GIS on my course roster but do note that everyone in this class must know how to program. You must feel confident in at least one programming language be it Java, Python, Ruby, C#, Javascript, etc., etc.--I do not care which. The point is that you have sufficient knowledge to comfortably and confidently build technical systems--you can pick up the rest as the course progresses.
    Electronics experience useful, but not required. We will be building basic tangible interactive computing systems that require interfacing with sensing and actuation circuits and programming micro-controllers. If you have limited hardware experience but have strong programming skills, you should be fine.

    Course Grades
    There will be no exams in this class; we will learn by doing and learn from each other. We will, however, have grades, which are broken down as follows:
