Arduino is a low-cost, open-source microcontroller often used in digital art for the creation of interactive objects, art installations, small robots and other applications. Initially designed to be used by artists and designers, its use was quickly spread to the creation of interactive objects and environments.
This workshop introduces the participant to the basic usage of Arduino. The goal is to get acquainted with the development and programming tools, as well as some basic notions of electronics and the creation of small concept prototypes. See below for a more detailed outline of the workshop's contents.
