I have been thinking a lot about whether I wanted to build upon my midterm idea and make a system of NES and analog sensors, but I wanted to move onto something different and I also feel the concept has been done to death. So, I started thinking about doing something that kids can play with, being inspired by making toys for kids (my nephew and niece, on a personal level)...I want to make a toy that is fun, tactile, and not attached to a computer / glass screen. I thought about making some toys that are big in scale, with sensors that can trigger music or a function that does not require the child to stare at a screen. I thought about a jigsaw puzzle that plays songs if it is completed, blocks that can be tossed around without breaking, and can generate a level of interactivity. Ultimately: I am interested in fun, friendly to kids, and does not involve staring at a screen. Sadly, I am lacking in inspiration.
I am curious to see what the rest of the class is interested in, and ideally we can join forces!
