Method at Etsy: Intro to Physical Computing

  1. 1. Hello Etsy Labs! For Etsy 2011
  2. 2. We’re Method For Etsy 2011 2
  3. 3. MethodWe are a design & innovationconsultancy. We solve businesschallenges through designthinking and create inspiredproducts, services and brands. For Etsy 2011 3
  4. 4. San FranciscoNew YorkLondon
  5. 5. We brainstorm.
  6. 6. We collaborate.
  7. 7. We ideate.
  8. 8. We create.
  9. 9. And we explore.
  10. 10. What isphysical computing? For Etsy 2011 15
  11. 11. Physical Computing is the digitalmeeting the physical. For Etsy 2011 16
  12. 12. Through software and code, we canelicit analog and reactive responsesfrom hardware. For Etsy 2011 17
  13. 13. We can communicate between thecomputer and hardware, opening upgreater possibilities. For Etsy 2011 18
  14. 14. Introducingthe Arduino
  15. 15. Arduino is an open-source electronicsprototyping platform based on flexible,easy-to-use hardware and software. For Etsy 2011 20
  16. 16. There are different types of Arduino,designed specifically for varyingprojects. They can be miniature, round,and flexible. For Etsy 2011 21
  17. 17. The microcontroller on the board isprogrammed using the Arduinoprogramming language, which is basedon Processing. For Etsy 2011 22
  18. 18. In simple terms, the code controls theoutput, allowing us to communicatebetween the computer and Arduino,opening up greater possibilities. For Etsy 2011 23
  19. 19. in a nutshell... sensor READS provides actionable input from the environment CODE tells it how to behave actuator laptop ACTIVATES causes a physical effect For Etsy 2011 24
  20. 20. in a nutshell... READS provides actionable input from the environment CODE tells it how to behave ACTIVATES causes a physical effect For Etsy 2011 25
  21. 21. How is physical computingbeing used? For Etsy 2011 26
  22. 22. Physical computing is beingutilized by designers, artists, andtechnologists to create reactiveand interactive products. For Etsy 2011 27

  28. 28. healthsocial/playprotectionmodularityflexibilityadaptabilityawareness Play: Wearables Confidential 33
  29. 29. There are several types of inputs:i.e. code, switches or sensors For Etsy 2011 34
  30. 30. A switch is a device for making andbreaking the connection in an electriccircuit. This allows us to control whenand how the hardware responds. For Etsy 2011 35
  31. 31. A switch completesthe circuit, turning theoutput on or off.
  32. 32. Circuits Switch (Open: circuit is not connected) Switch (Closed: circuit is complete)Creating a closed circuit + + Battery Battery (Power source) (Power source) - - Output Output (Off) (On) For Etsy 2011 37
  33. 33. Sensors allow for sensing of andresponding to the physical world.This makes reactions from thehardware possible. For Etsy 2011 38
  34. 34. This heart rate sensorgathers informationabout the user.
  35. 35. Gesture and movement can be amechanism for interaction throughthe use of cameras, the Kinect,and accelerometers. For Etsy 2011 40
  36. 36. The heart senses gesturesThis Kinectrate sensorand movements.gathers informationabout the user.
  37. 37. There are multiple outputs ofphysical computing, includinglight, sound, motion, and image. For Etsy 2011 42
  38. 38. A basic outputis turning onan LED light.
  39. 39. A more complicatedoutput is this automatedgeneration of a tattoo,called Auto Ink.
  40. 40. You’ve seen and probably alreadyinteracted with physical computing. For Etsy 2011 45
  41. 41. Gaming Devices
  42. 42. Smart Wearables
  43. 43. InteractiveRetail Environments
  44. 44. Home Products
  45. 45. Mobile Devices
  46. 46. What we’re doing today For Etsy 2011 51
  47. 47. The Memory BraceletCreating a mechanism for aiding in memoryCode - will tell the Arduino when to alert us (i.e. every 5 minutes)Arduino - will tell the actuator (led, buzzer, motor) to perform so we can see the effectThe bracelet - will be a casually wearable accessory acting as a host to contain thismechanism For Etsy 2011 52
  48. 48. ArduinosMany types of Arduinosfor varying purposesToday, we’ll be using the Uno. Uno Lilypad Mega Mini For Etsy 2011 53
  49. 49. SoftwareManipulating outputs through codeby changing variables For Etsy 2011 54
  50. 50. OutputsMany different types of outputs Light: LEDs Sound: Piezo buzzers Motion: Piezo vibrator For Etsy 2011 55
  51. 51. Step 1: Wire
  52. 52. Step 2: Test
  53. 53. Step 3: Code
  54. 54. Step 4: Integrate
  55. 55. Step 5: Refine
  56. 56. Step 6: Use!
  57. 57. Potential ApplicationsReal-world applications for your bracelet include:Alert to test blood sugar Reminder to get up and stretch Prompt to take medicine For Etsy 2011 62
  58. 58. Extending the ideaThrough hardware, sensors, and codeThe next step would be to make this bracelet independent of the computer. We can hook itup to a battery as a powersource and use smaller Arduinos such as the Lilypad to create afree-moving memory bracelet! For Etsy 2011 63
