At D3 2012, we shook things up a bit by breaking the afternoon session into three tracks, so that the conversations about natural user interface could deepen and the conference attendees could get more intimately involved.
One of the afternoon tracks included a workshop called “Prototyping Natural Interactions Using Arduino and Immersion’s Neutrino”. This workshop, facilitated by Andrew Milmoe with the assistance of Immersion’s UX team, promised to allow participants to explore a few simple means of prototyping interaction designs using a choice of sensors connected to an Arduino and Immersion’s Haptic response kit. People enjoyed it so much they worked through the session’s scheduled break. The end result: some furry friends came to life.
