We were hanging out in Little Italy/Chinatown tonight and Joe came up with this brilliant bilingual pun that celebrates the confluence of cultures in a pizza/scallion pancake slice of Lower Manhattan with classic New York wit and attitude. Here’s to pasta and to potstickers and to Sino-Italian-American friendship! Ni hao you doin’?
I worked with Tim and Liesje yesterday on our Physical Computing midterm, the Voodoo Bear, which is a bit like Frankenstein’s monster, built from the shell of a Build-a-Bear and various wires, sensors and other components. The bear will move in reaction to human actions on a connected Processing program or through triggering sensors built into the bear. Click on the schematic below for details. Still very much a work in progress, so I’ll save full the explanation for later.
