I have been playing basketball for the past 17 years, and also loved to go to the arcade to play basketball hoop games. That is the reason that drew me to create "The Magic Hoop", which is an arcade game which will integrate a couple of the learnings I have taken in the class of "How to make almost anything" at the MIT Media Lab. It is very fun game and final project thus far. My main learning has been that you really just got to "Get your hands dirty" and "Be willing to put in the time and effort", and you will almost certain to be able to complete everything that you set your mind out to do. When I first started on the class, I was a bit worried and slow, but towards the final weeks, and especially in the final project, I finally started to learn how to really "make" things!
