CES (Consumer Electronics Show) is the exhibition showcasing the latest in consumer technology since 1967 and hosting previews of products and new product announcements by the most important companies in the industry.
Knowledge Modi e Mondi Nuovi mira a raccontare il passaggio della società analogia a quella delle reti, dei dati e della realtà aumentata attraverso un programma di eventi focalizzati su robotica, stampa 3D e semantica web.
Officine Arduino parteciperà all’evento tra venerdì 15 e domenica 17 novembre presso il Museo Nazionale della Scienza e Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci di Milano. Oltre che con uno stand, Officine Arduino sarà presente con uno store e con una serie di dimostrazioni gratuite della durata di un’ora.
Il primo appuntamento con l’Arduino Tour per quest’autunno ci porta a Udine:
22 novembre6 dicembre alle 19.00: presentazione pubblica di Arduino nella sede di Confartigianato Udine in Via del Pozzo 8
We are really excited to be included in the 2013 Nominet Trust 100 which celebrates inspiring examples of ventures from around the world that are using tech to accelerate social change.

Starting thursday the 3rd of October, Maker Faire Rome is finally opening in the italian capital, gathering hundreds of makers from all over Europe. We’ve been working on it for some months together with Riccardo Luna and Asset Camera team: finally it’s time to enjoy the moment.
On thursday you can attend the conference “How to reMake the World” with Riccardo Luna and Massimo Banzi, curators of the Faire, along with international guests including David John Gauntlett, Raffaello D’Andrea, Dale Dougherty and many more. It’ll be a total immersion in the universe of 3D printing, open source electronics and the culture of making. Discover all the speakers at this link.
You can visit Arduino booth (Zone D2) during the weekend where you’ll find a series of one-to-one stations for different level of knowledge, from beginners to pro. You’ll be able to explore together with Officine Arduino/FablabTorino crew:
- the Arduino Starter Kit with its 10 projects and the book (Now also in ITALIAN!)
- the Arduino Yún and some cool demos
- the Arduino Mega ADK and its great features
- the Arduino Robot running around the fair!
- other experimental projects from the lab
Many people have been asking and the answer is YES! There will be an Arduino Store selling most of the Arduino products at the Faire (Arduino Yún included!). You’ll find also some other interesting products like kits from Make, O’Reilly books, Little Bits, kits by Prusa, Ultimaker, Plug&Wear and more.
Starting at the conference, there will be Massimo Banzi, all the other Arduino’s founders (Tom Igoe, David Mellis, David Cuartielles, Gianluca Martino) and Officine Arduino/Fablab Torino crew participating to panels, talks and debates. Check Maker Faire program in the next days to learn about the details. Don’t miss this chance to have your board autographed!

This year, once again we are participating at World Maker Faire for the whole weekend. You can come and visit our booth at the Hall of Science. We’ll have 4 hands-on demo tables allowing you to know more about Arduino boards, try using the IDE and experiment with the hardware yourself.
We’ll be demonstrating the new Arduino Yún and how to use Temboo. We also set up a special table to experiment with the Arduino Robot and allow visitors to try its wonderful capabilities live.
On Saturday afternoon there’ll be a couple of presentations you can attend:
- Massimo Banzi: The state of Arduino
Where: Innovation Stage
When: Saturday 2:30 PM 3:00 PM
- Michael Shiloh: Getting Started With the Arduino Yún
Where: Electronics Stage
When: Saturday 4:30 PM 5:00 PM
Looking forward to see you all at the Electronic Pavillion, ZONE C (check out the Makerfaire MAP in PDF)
Make Magazine published a short report of the panel taking place at the Hardware Innovation Workshop, yesterday in New York City. Massimo Banzi and Jason Kridner, co-founder of BeagleBoard, were on the stage talking about the evolution of microcontrollers:
Makers love to develop on their favorite microcontrollers. The creators behind two of the most popular took boards the stage at the New York Hardware Innovation Workshop (HIW) in a panel moderated by MAKE’s own Matt Richardson. Although makers might like to argue about which is the best platform, there was plenty of common ground for these two panelists.
Massimo Banzi, Co-Founder of the Arduino Project, began the session with a short discussion on how and why Arduino got started.
“Every time you design a system to do everything, you end up with a system designed to do nothing,” Massimo says. “The challenge is to build a platform that solves a simple problem for a specific group of people: beginners for example.”
The greatest show and tell on earth is coming to Rome next October and it’s now time to organize and register to the events!
