The course will focus on the development of a simple game, which will foster the imagination of interaction mechanisms between computational machines and the player. For the development of the game we will use Max/MSP/Jitter visual programming language. And, if needed, we will use Arduino microcontrollers to sense and/or to trigger the physical world.

In the first half of the semester, students will be expected to develop weekly tasks. The tasks will include the manipulation of simple graphics and animation. Along with the work in our home offices, we will use an Online-Seminar, GMUGestaltung medialer Umgebungen WikiHaiwaiian for ''fast'' (not an acronym). It is the name for a hypertext system for websites where the user may not only read the content but is also able to change it instantaneously through the browser., and online tutorials for learning to program with Max. The second half of the semester will be devoted to the realization of the individual idea.

No special skills are required to participate in the course. The necessary tools are provided. Participation at the Big Blue Button Online-Seminar.
