Hardware: Arduino and open electronic

20th to 24th january 2007

Arduino (http://arduino.cc/) is an open-source physical computing platform that is revolutionising the interactive arts. It is based on a simple i/o board, and a development environment for writing Arduino software. The Arduino programming language is an implementation
of the language used by Wiring, while the Arduino environment is based on Processing.

Arduino can be used to develop interactive objects, taking inputs from a variety of switches or sensors, and controlling a variety of lights, motors, and other outputs. Arduino projects can stand alone, or communicate with software running on your computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, Pure Data). The boards can be assembled by hand or purchased preassembled; the open-source IDE can be downloaded for free.

Arduino received an Honorary Mention in the Digital Communities section of the 2006 Ars Electronica Prix. The workshop is for beginners as well as experienced users.

Time: from 4 to 9 pm


David Cuartielles is co-creator of the Arduino Open Hardware Platform and has directed numerous workshops. He exhibits his own artistic work regularly.
Marcos Yarza is an industrial engineer and collaborates on Arduino Project since September 2005 (HYPERLINK “http://www.libelium.com” www.libelium.com).
