Arduino Workshop Planned for Future Places Festival

Festival planners are concluding negotiations with Tinker.it, a technology and design consultancy based in London and Milan, to offer a workshop on Arduino. This open-source electronics platform is known for its flexibility—allowing the creation of a wide range of interactive objects and environments—and for its accessibility, in that Arduino is simple enough to be used by physical computing novices. These traits have made Arduino useful to digital media artists and designers from a variety of backgrounds. During the two-day workshop, Tinker.it representatives will discuss physical computing and interaction design and introduce participants to the platform’s history. After this introduction, participants will have the opportunity to work with basic Arduino kits, provided by the workshop, and create their own small projects. More details on this workshop and the development of other workshops will follow soon.
