Experimental Interaction | Processing : Pong Assignment

Having started on open source, we looked further into the various open source projects. Processing is an open source computer programming language built for the design communities with the purpose of teaching non-programmers the fundamentals of computing programming in a visual context.

Using processing, we are tasked to work on our first individual project – Pong.  After much struggle, I finally managed to program a complete and functioning game!  This is how the game looks when you run the code.

Experimental Interaction | Arduino Tutorial

In addition to Processing, this week we will be experimenting on a similar open-source hardware known as Arduino.  

Arduino is an open source computer hardware and software company that designs and manufactures single board micro-controllers and kits for building digital devices and interactive objects that can sense and control objectives in the physical and digital world.

We were given the Arduino Uno Rev3 together with some LEDs, photoresistors and resistors to experiment with. The Arduino Uno Rev3 is a micro-controller board that comes with 14 digital input and/or output pins.
