Wow, that's great! As you know the Arduino is an awesome electronics prototyping platform for creating wonderful products. I agree it will be alot of fun: l'm definitely looking forward to teaching course.
It does sound like a fun course. Speaking of fun, I will presenting a course on the Arduino starting the week of June 9th. The title of the course is called "Make with Arduino" and I will be taking excerpts from my new book titled Make: Basic Arduino Projects. In this course I'll be discussing what the Arduino is, a sketch, and how to get started using it's IDE. I'll be using examples of projects from the web and the book on how to "Make" cool electronic devices using this awesome prototyping tool.
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Biomimicry has already found its way into the development of robots and new materials, with researchers studying animals and nature to come up with new innovations. Now thanks to researchers in Boston, biomimicry could even inform the future of electrical networks for next-generation displays.
