As I am typing this blog out on my laptop, I am thinking about how the past few weeks have made me re-evaluate a lot of what I have been thinking about technology. The most significant thing I believe I have learned to understand is just HOW MUCH goes into making something as simple as a typing keyboard work. Between the construction, the different components, serial communication and even the programming that must be involved, is mindblowing. Personally, I am a big advocate for tactile and tangible design, and the past few weeks have not made me change my idea, in fact, I think it only made me appreciate it even more. As I was working with building circuits and building prototypes over the past few weeks, even with the little understanding that I have of what is , making the arduino speak to it, and watching something happen when I press a button reinforces WHY I like how things are tangible. When something I physically built is working, and I can interact with it physically, it still makes me feel much more satisfied that seeing a code run on my computer. Maybe I am old-fashioned, but ultimately, I still have more affinity with something that exists in the physical world than something that exists purely in the digital realm.
