All of our playtesting and months of refinement paid off. Yamove was finally launched last month at this year’s third annual NYU “No Quarter” gaming exhibit on May 18th and at the World Science Festival in New York City on June 2nd.

Ginny, Alvin, and I piled into my Subaru wagon and spent a couple of hours scouting materials and testing structures in the Lowes shopping aisles. Once we saw the range of materials available, we were able to firm up our construction design, which […]

First, using the Arduino and pressing on just one of the FSR sensors, I wrote code that allowed me to view the changing analog values for that sensor […]

Another way to say this might be to call it a “dehydration sensor” that sits on top of the skin. Dehydration is essentially an […]
