About this Unit
This is a project-based learning unit that assists students to creatively synthesise skills learned in previous units. Students are introduced to current problem solving in professional practice that negotiates between physical and digital components to form smart artefacts. That relation is represented with the development of an interactive robot and its digital mirror counterpart as its avatar. The unit also assists in the preparation of a professional portfolio show piece for job applications in the industry. Learning by experimentation, the unit links traditional skillsets including software and 3D printing with new forms of design, from engineering narratives to digital creativity within augmented and virtual environments.
