Mediamatic Arduino Unplugged workshop
12 | 13 | 14 | March 2007

Tiny chips, cheap sensors and the possibilities of emerging smart fabrics, conductive yarns and cheap wireless communication (bluetooth or even rfid) make wearables easier and cheaper to make. Arduino boards are small physical computing platforms: Arduino developed a fairly simple integrated development environment to deal with the small portable input/output board.
In this workshop we will have a look at wireless Arduino's (Bluetooth Arduino's).

Massimo Banzi a.k.a. Mr. Arduino, is one of the founders of Arduino. He currently teaches Physical Interaction Design at the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea and is a consultant on interaction design projects that involve electronics and technology.

This workshop is intended for Computer scientists, hardware hackers, art students, fabric experts, product developers, nerds, dancers - everyone is welcome. However, note that some technical affinity is required. Some experience in programming and electronics will come in useful, specifically in soldering and java, but is not strictly necessary.

You can register online:
The Arduino Unplugged workshop costs 125 euros. Dutch students receive a discount of 50 euros.
