The New Shop Class Getting Started with 3D Printing, Arduino, and Wearable Tech
MetadataShow full item record
Chapter 1 gives you an overview of the diﬀerence in mindset between the two of us and provides a road map for the rest of the book. Chapters 2–4 go into some detail with regard to some of the basic technologies: an easy-to-learn microprocessor called an Arduino, 3D printing, and robotics. Chapter 5 shifts a little and talks about how people are creating spaces to learn by making things, both in public spaces and at schools. Chapter 6 talks about building on these base technologies to do “citizen science” (real science projects with general-public participants). Chapter 7 is an introduction to the world of wearable technology—creating clothing that can light up, react to the world around it, or just do things that seem like magic. Chapter 8 is an overview of some easier technologies and explains our view on why you may not want to start with these training wheels.
