For this class, I wanted to explore ways that objects could interact with their environments. I was inspired by the Make Ways For Ducklings story to come up with an idea to make a duck robot that could either follow a person, or show the paths to somebody in needs of direction. It would be great to play around with the possibilities of introducing elements like LEDs and sound that would visualise certain environments the duck-bot is in. Sounds exciting, but let's see how it goes!
Heartfelt thanks to Maya Taketani, with whom I discussed my idea on the robot duck. She conviced me that I should go for it. I'm glad I talked to her, and I chose to do it!
