While many people prototype their designs with Phidgets, there are a lot of people making one-time installations to work with Phidgets on a long-term basis. These people make museum exhibits and Phidgets help the creation of exhibits that move people from being passive observers to engaged participants in learning.

RobotShop and DSP Robotics just launched some new apps to get Phidgets quickly working on your computer. The Phidget Interface Kit app offers an intuitive visual way of monitoring Phidgets, logging data and sequencing patterns of output. Let’s look at some of these features.
