The Prototyping Toolbox
Ive been looking for this for a while - since the Interactionsdesign Forum
A history of the development of Processing - Wiring - Arduino at IDII
"All designers have their medium: for a product designer it may be plastics, for an architect brick or concrete, for a graphic designer litho printing. The medium of the interaction designer is computation: software and electronics.
Until recently, this medium was only accessible to engineers: designers weren't able to work directly with programming and electronics to develop and test their ideas.
This map shows the work of professors and students over the past four years at Interaction-Ivrea, together with many collaborators all over the world. The software and hardware they have built, used in many of the Institute's projects, allows designers to be truly creative in this new medium."
