Physical Computing is an approach to learning how humans communicate through computers that starts by considering how humans express themselves physically. In this course, we take the human body as a given, and attempt to design computing applications within the limits of its expression.
If you're using the physical computing shop at ITP, welcome. This site is the info site for the shop and a portal for other resources. If you're new to the shop, please read through all of the Policy and Safety sections of this site, and attend a shop safety tutorial before you start working in the shop (it's required).
Shop Policies You Should Know
All people using the shop must attend a safety seminar once a year and take the safety quiz in order to use the shop. This is required by law. Seminars for the Fall 09 semester begin the week of 9/10. See John or any of the residents if you haven't attended a safety session.
All shop users are expected to follow the instructions of shop staff at all times. This includes all safety rules, and it includes assisting with shop cleanup at the end of the night, and whenever else necessary.
Details on shop policies can be found here. Please read them and ask us any questions you have.
