For one part of the week 2 assignment fo Physical Computing, we were supposed to take pictures of all the sensors we came in contact with… I chose to post some pictures of the most useful sensors I saw. The Chase ATMs, the card reader at the subway station, the metro card buying machine… I was surprised that it seems like not a lot of storefronts are using automatic sliding doors, these days. I really didn’t see one. I was looking for a sensor-operated faucet and I didn’t encounter one.
It will be interesting to see how we will take the understanding of sensors further into our work in this class.
