<nettime-ann> Let's Get Physical - Arduino Workshop Lisbon



Just to inform you about a workshop that CADA - Atmosferas Digital Arts Center is organizing:  ?Let?s Get Physical ? Physical Computing with Arduino?, Lisbon, 3-6- May, Massimo Banzi.



About Arduino (
Arduino is an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple i/o board and a development environment that implements the Processing language. Arduino can be used to develop stand-alone interactive objects or can be connected to software on your computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, Max/MSP). The boards can be assembled by hand or purchased preassembled; the open-source IDE can be downloaded for free.

About the Workshop
The Arduino philosophy is based on making design rather then talking about it. It is a constant search for faster and more accurate ways to build better prototypes. We have explored many prototyping techniques and developed ways of thinking with our hands.

This workshop has a strong practical component.
At the end of the workshop participants will devellop a mini-project.
