Blip Blink & Move Laboratory (BBML) 

At the Blip Blink & Move Laboratory (BBML) at the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong, we do strange but beautiful things with electricity. We believe in the superiority of DC power. We believe in reverse engineering. We love old gadgets, the Salvation Army store and 9V batteries are our best friends. We make art, and we believe in the expressive potential of an open breadboard circuit. The motto of BBML is "don't fear art, don't fear electronics." 

We run several classes here at BBML: two undergraduate workshops (Creative Electronics Workshop, Building Interfaces for Ubiquitous Musical Expression), and a slightly more advanced MFA level course (Making Things that Blip, Blink and Move: Introduction to Physical Computing).
