Caring for the dinosaur’s health

Response: This project seems like a great way to envision game design from a physical computing perspective! I have a lot of appreciation for my old toys and love the idea of using these skills towards toy design. If I were to make my own, I think I would modify the code or develop my own game for the platform. I’ve only ever created games/animations for browsers before, and I would enjoy creating something designed to interact with a physical environment.
