ICT5007 Maker & Electronics Production Studio
Much of modern technology is now physical in nature. By that we mean small electronics in our rooms or on our persons that tell us about our environment, ourselves or give us feedback about the real world. These simple electronics can be easily programmed for a wide variety of tasks that can be utilized for research, education or art. The related “Maker” aspect of this is also making tangible objects in many ways related to what a shop class would cover. The new world of this shop class entails the printing of physical objects like a tool or a bone on a device from a computer description. This world utilizes basic programming and design skills from the other courses and brings virtual ideas into the real world. This segment of technology has a decidedly non-commercial attitude and is all about do it yourself.
