Im back home after a few weeks of vacation. Im glad to be home because it means I can get back to work on fun new things. In the past week, I was given a gift-card to Best Buy. The only thing I could think of getting was a wii Remote. I don’t own a wii, but having all those buttons and an accelerometer in a bluetooth device was too cool to pass up. I spent an hour or so and got it working in flash (through bluetooth). Im now able to use all the axes and buttons as variables. I just made a simple ball on the screen that moves as you shake the remote, but it is enough to build off of.
The past few days I was also going over all the interaction design I did when making RISDpedia, and was thinking about how much better I could do it now. So I think im going to do just that. I made a list of things that could easily be improved, so during this winter-session (6 weeks) I hope to do that (along with 2 site builds, reading 2 books, interning 2 days a week, taking a class, working on a bunch of other stuff (multi-touch table), and more). A lot… I know.
