ELECTRO PET SHOP | MDDN251| Shanshan Zhou

This is a study blog for MDDN251, Physical Computing, at SOD, VUW. It serves as my scrapbook of inspirations, notepad for my thoughts and research on this topic, as well as the documentation for my project development. We often see designers and artists pass on a little part of their own soul to their creations. I believe getting artists and designers involved in mechanics and electronics creations will give machines of tomorrow a bit more humanity. I want to making machine as creating a living art. I'm looking forward to gaining new insights and more experience in this course on this topic.
