My wonderful team and I participated in Adaptive Design Association’s Morse Code Game Jam, a  three day event in collaboration with Google,
adafruit, and Tania and Ken Finlayson.

My role was to design a physical interface to accompany the game. We learned from Chardelle that Ben recently learned to isolate his finger to tap
on an iPad. To emphasize the “dit” and “dah”s, I customized an iPad case that also transforms into an adjustable stand for Ben to play his new game.

Materials:
Cardboard
1/4” width styling tape for protecting the bends
Velcro with adhesive backing
Glue 

Laser Cutting:
The finished prototype was cut on 1/16” thick cardboard on a 75 Watt Epilog Laser Machine. This process requires configuring different settings for each
layer: cutting, scoring (bends), and etching. Testing is crucial. Resubmitting the same job at lower settings helps to avoid burn marks on the cardboard.




Team Ben!
