fab10

This year the  international event for digital manufacturing comes to Barcelona to celebrate 10 years of sharing experiences and the evolution of the project. Ever since the first meeting of digital manufacturing experts was held in 2004, in Boston, until FAB10 today, these meetings have been travelling around the world spreading ideas and receiving support.

FAB10 is organised by the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IaaC). Hábitat Urbano from Barcelona City Council, the Center for Bits and Atoms, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Fab Foundation, both in Boston, have worked in close collaboration.

Fab 10 is divided in 3 main areas and Arduino will participate to the event with different talks and workshops: (more…)

The Torino Mini Maker Faire - Saturday 31st of May – is the event dedicated to both digital and non digital manual creativity. Organized by Officine Arduino, Toolbox Coworking and Fablab Torino, it’s the first maker faire in the town of Mole Antonelliana and will be an event open to all: curious, newbies, kids, inventors of all shapes and sizes. Created in the United States in 2006, the Maker Faires over the years have become a not-to-be-missed event for anyone looking for a way to have quick picture of creative projects and innovative ideas of the moment.

Massimo Banzi and Bruce Sterling will close the day of talks with a keynote starting at 6pm and titled: “Arduino, the future and the internet of things”. If you live around the Piemonte area, it’s an event you won’t want to miss!

mbanzi-digifest

Massimo Banzi  will be featured as  Meet the Media Guru at #DigifestTO2014 in Toronto on the 9th of May!

Digifest is Toronto’s international festival celebrating digital creativity and this year the theme is Digital Urbanism and the Future of Cities:

For the first time in our history, more than half of the world’s population lives in cities. With a continual growth of 60 million urban residents every year, 70% of the population will live in cities by 2050.

If you are not staying in that part of the world, follow the livestream starting at 4.30 pm local time (20.30 GMT).

ArduinoD14

It’s been a couple of weeks since we celebrated with all of you the beginning of our tenth year. We’ve been receiving videos and pictures and want to share them in this post (Explore the tagboard of #ArduinoD14).

The first Arduino Day around the World was a huge success largely due to the dedication of each of the communities joining the party! We had more than 240 community events sharing with us this moment of celebration and we sincerely appreciate the efforts and thank you again for the support within the Arduino Open Source Community!

ARDUINODAY

Arduino is having a worldwide anniversary event on March 29th bringing together the people and projects that have helped it grow to where it is today. This celebration of Arduino and its community is a day of official and self-organised gatherings, encouraging people to meet and share their interest with neighbors and friends.

More than 240 user groups, makerspaces, hackerspaces, fablabs, schools, studios, and educators around the world have planned unique activities designed for a wide range of audiences and skillsets.

We have created a map to identify all the community events going on throughout Europe, North and South America, Asia, Africa, and Australia. Find an event near you at http://arduinoday.tv (more…)

Arduino Tour 2014: le nuove tappe di Rimini e Pula #Italy

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Wearables Rimini

 

L‘Arduino Tour torna nel 2014 con due tappe  ‘on the beach‘: Rimini e Pula. Le due location ospiteranno nelle prossime settimane due workshop dedicati all’alfabeto di Arduino e alle wearable technologies.

  • L’appuntamento di Rimini si terrà sabato 22 febbraio negli spazi del nuovissimo MakerRn Lab di Rimini, dove Zoe Romano e Riccardo Marchesi di Plug&Wear introdurranno in otto ore di workshop il mondo dei wearables. Nella prima parte della giornata ci si avvicinerà a livello teorico alle applicazioni wearable, mentre nella seconda i parteciperanno produrranno un piccolo progetto con un sensore tessile. Appassionati di moda, design e smanettoni sono benvenuti, non è infatti richiesta alcuna conoscenza di programmazione o di taglio e cucito.  Qui trovi i dettagli per prenotare uno degli ultimi posti ancora disponibili!
  • La tappa sarda dell’Arduino Tour toccherà mercoledì 26 febbraio la sede dello IED di Cagliari (Viale Trento 39, h. 17) con un’introduzione alla scheda Arduino curata da Mirco Piccin e aperta a tutti. Tra giovedì 27 e venerdì 28 febbraio, il team Arduino si sposterà invece con Davide Gomba a Pula negli spazi del Parco Tecnologico della Sardegna, dove il Fablab di Sardegna Ricerche ospiterà le 16 ore di workshop vero e proprio. Al termine del percorso, i partecipanti avranno per competenze per mettere a punto mini-progetti, da implementare poi in autonomia a casa.  Prenota la tua partecipazione  qui!

 

 

 

DIY IWBs for Officine Arduino 2nd Birthday

Officine Arduino Party

Arduino has a little (yet effective) bit in Turin, and that’s Officine Arduino. We opened this place two years ago to offer a shelter to the Arduinians in northern Italy and host a makerspace, for their creations. We witnessed (and joined) the foundation of the Torino Fablab, an association offering the very same machines to anybody interested about the maker movement in Turin. On top of that, the all ardu-maker-fab-co-creative space is hosted in Toolbox Coworking.

It’s tough to weight all the efforts and failures and successes we reached in these two years. We’ve seen the birth of Verkstad Arduino, the Swedish Arduino Office which is sharing the same principles we’ve been looking for in conceiving this place: mixing the company approach and the horizontal, informal one of makerspaces and coworking spaces (aka collaboration spaces).

I love the way Arduino Team dealt with the growing of the project: create different little places rather than having a huge one. (more…)
