Work in progress: TinkerKit

We’ve been working on this behind the scenes for a while and thought it might be good to share it with the community and see what sticks.

is an Arduino-compatible physical computing prototyping toolkit aimed at design professionals. We wanted to be able to simplify even more the process of designing with hardware, iterating during the creative process in the area of interaction design and generally just trying things out quickly and with not much effort or soldering needed.

We’ll be releasing a few videos to show you what’s possible, but I thought we should start with (a great designer who interned with us last fall) and Daniel Soltis, our interaction design in the London office working on a body sensitive interaction in just a few minutes and finding out what works best.

We’re looking for collaborators and feedback on this project so if you’re interested, please give us a shout!
