Short Circuits: Crafting E-Puppets with DIY Electronics

Short Circuits: Crafting e-Puppets with DIY Electronics explores the field of electronics and “e-textiles,” which involves making physical computing projects based in fabrics and other everyday materials. This volume focuses that exploration on the use of electronic hand puppets, sound-enabled storyboards, and DIY flashlight-enabled shadow puppetry in order to delve into literacy and storytelling.

Also, learn more about systems with Water+ (created for Interconnections in partnership with Carnegie Mellon’s Entertainment Technology Center students “Team GameGrid“).

We look forward to making and learning with you!
