Interactive Exhibit Project: History and the LilyPad Arduino
For the second term of my M.A. in Public History at the University of Western Ontario, I have been given the opportunity to create an interactive exhibit project of my choosing. These projects will use new technologies to invigorate the delivery of historic material. Given the increasing availability of open source software, there are an abundance of potential exhibits that can be cheaply assembled.
For my exhibit, I have decided to work with the LilyPad Arduino to create an e-textile that integrates historic content with an exciting new technology. I have created this website to document my successes and failures over the course of this project.
So please, accompany me as I make my grandiose ideas come to life!
