Yesterday, as part of the IACC Global Summer School agenda, Massimo Banzi (co-founder of Arduino.cc) gave a web-lecture from Torino Fablabitalia connected in streaming to Barcelona and Mumbai.
Massimo talked about Arduino, which are the ideas behind it, possible implementations, what will be next, and went through a series of showcases of “Arduino minded” designs.
“Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.”
Students of the IAAC GSS workshops are deeply experimenting interactivity in urban architecture by building city models implemented with Arduino based electronic nervous systems able to map socio-environmental data and to use them ad design input.
Look at the works from the IAAC GSS blog!
