Making the Web Physical
What is it?
It’s playing with fun, interactive prototypes that make the web physical. Exploring the “internet of things,” and combining digital elements with physical objects and blurring making with webmaking.
Check out some of the super cool Internet-Made-Real things we saw at MozFest:
“The MaKey MaKey circuit board pretends it’s a USB keyboard, but you make your own keys by alligator clipping it to objects that are at least a little bit conductive. Press the spacebar by completing a circuit when you touch a banana, your grandma, or a penny. Make a piano out of pastries, or a game controller out of play-doh.”
