My name is Gabriel. I am a visual designer interested in data visualization and interaction design. I have worked with web, but for the most part of my career so far, I worked for magazines. My website: http://gianordoli.com/
I took some Arduino classes before and I had a hard time coming up with ideas for physical projects. I think I am still stuck in a 2D way of thinking, that’s why I am taking this class.
My favorite toy from childhood is this puppet/monster: http://www.trash80s.com.br/2009/12/ta-lembrado-bogs-da-estrela/
There were 2 versions of them: the small one does nothing, it’s a regular hand puppet. The big one moves its eyes if you press a button from its inside. Like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLQI5d_lymQ
P.S.: there is a problem with the picture upload in the blog.
