Written in exuberant style, it is one part instruction manual, one part autobiography of creative evolution, and three parts shout of encouragement to new tinkerers and old geeks (TLSF Death Blossom!!!). I look forward to giving my copy to a 10 year old neighbor who loves to build stuff and loves graphics and games. I don't think his little sister will thank me for setting him up to build a fully robotic Nerf launcher, but this project is such a great blend of fun and learning that it will be worth it.
On technical note, this book is also a great little introduction to the wide range of capabilities in the "Processing" programming language. Prior to this, I thought of Processing only as the basis for the Arduino IDE. This book has opened my eyes to lots of new possibilities to use Processing to knit together all kinds of software/graphics/physical computing projects.
I'm a complete novice to programming, but I've played with NERF guns for years, which is what drew me to the book. It's an awesome project - great idea, great book, great buy.
If you have ever only briefly thought about doing any physical computing/coding, but have been turned off (like me), thinking its too overwhelming or hard to learn... do yourself a favor and buy this book!
The author does a great job of walking you through the basics, providing great visuals and snippets of code to make your first project a reality.
Great writing, especially since he uses his own real projects as examples. It's not some boring, hard to read instruction manual.
It's inspiring too.
He reminds you throughout the book to tinker and experiment; and how a playful side project/hobby can lead to real work and employment opportunities.
I enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to building my own projects soon!
