UM students design talking Trump doll with Arduino

It's great to begin your day with a laugh.

I've just got to the School of Communication and saw Fábio Ribeiro, a student in our MFA in Interactive Media. Fábio was carrying an artifact designed in collaboration with Chris RoyLauren Kett, and Rafael Baldwin. The four of them did great in my introduction to infographics and data visualization class last semester, and they seem to be having fun in the Physical Computing course, taught by Dan Dickinson (here's the rest of the faculty.)

Anyway, their latest creation is a goofy Arduino-driven talking doll of Donald Trump. See a photo and a video:
