Beyond the Joystick is a 6-session workshop series created for artists, designers and hobbyists interested in starting to think about and explore alternative physical interfaces that can be used in games, toys or interactive art projects. This workshop series was run twice, during Summer 2011 and Fall 2011.

Thinking beyond the traditional screen, keyboard and mouse interface, as well as the traditional gaming controller, we utilized tools including the Arduino development system, low-tech switches and sensors to create simple custom physical interfaces to enhance the user experience. And later on in the workshop, we learned about combining Processing with the Arduino.
