Earthquakes reinterpreted by the human body become art

Saturday, November 29th, 2014

simograph0

“Earth Partitions” installation by artist Melik Ohanian was exhibited at the Centre d’Art Contemporain à Sète in France and it’s composed by two synchronized videos with a dancer and a seismogram, the second being “written” by the first.

The dancer with two controllers in the hands was asked to “translate” into corporal expression and movements what he saw in a seismogram of an earthquake . His movements were consequently “translated back” to a seismogram using a device. Both the mime and the seismograph were filmed at the same time and both were then broadcasted simultaneously on two different screens during the exhibition. (more…)

From the 3rd to the 5th of October all the Arduino crew will be staying in Rome for the European Maker Faire hosting more than 500 makers from all over the world! You can come and visit us in one of the 3 main areas (Arduino  booth, Arduino Store, Arduino Activities) of the fair dedicated to Arduino:

*********************
ARDUINO BOOTH

  • SPECIAL Installation – Arduino TRE Photobooth
    A 3D anaglyph photobooth uses two cameras to capture a 3D picture. Each picture is processed using the new Arduino TRE board. It separates the red channel from one camera and the cyan channel from the other, and overlays them together. The result is then printed out on a large photostrip.

Trataka” by Alessio Chierico is an interactive installation controlled by Arduino and based on a brain-computer interface. It was exhibited at Ars Electronica last week. When a visitor totally relaxes and focuses, the candle magically extinguishes: (more…)

The Maker Gene: Arduino at the Venice Biennale of Architecture

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

makergene

Arduino has been chosen as an example of how the open-source, collaborative approach is reshaping the world of technology and design and, on September 5th and 6th, we’ll be one of the contributors of the Weekend Specials section of the 14th International Architecture Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia curated by Rem Koolhaas.

The Arduino space at the Biennale Architettura 2014 has been conceived to inspire visitors to rediscover their ‘maker gene’: the impulse to learn and make things by yourself. Curated by Enrico Bassi, the exhibition includes responsive installations and hands-on demos to encourage visitors to interact and better understand the creative, transformative potential of Arduino and other open-source digital tools.

The first section focuses on the history, development and applications of Arduino. It features a glance at the evolution of the board, alongside an illustration of how it can enable an easy, direct approach to electronics and programming. In a dedicated area, the Treviso Arduino User Group, a local community of makers, engages visitors in a two-day hackathon on biometric and environmental sensors. The mezzanine level offers a playful and immersive take on what Arduino can bring to light installations.

A second section explores the impact of Arduino on a variety of innovative projects and businesses. It features a selection of items from Arduino AtHeart, a program designed to support and promote independently developed Arduino-based products: Primo, Smart Citizen Kit, Bare Conductive Touch Board, littleBits Arduino Module, and Cromatica.
In the Italian Innovators area, a special focus is granted to outstanding examples of how Arduino fosters creativity and technological development in its country of origin: WASProject, a research initiative on architectural 3d-printing; MEG, an innovative open-source home greenhouse; Light Cryptalk, an Arduino-powered recreation of the WW2 Enigma cypher machine.

Ironically extending the maker approach to other, broader parts of society, a set of videos in the final section of the exhibition compares the effects of the closed- and open-source philosophy in sectors ranging from the auto industry to architecture, suggesting the possibility of a radical, pervasive transformation.

A new way of learning and transmitting knowledge with Arduino

Monday, July 21st, 2014

cct-verkstad

The training program Creative Technologies in the Classroom (CTC) is a 3-month  educative program designed by David Cuartielles and Arduino Verkstad in collaboration with Fundación Telefónica, Fundación la Caixa and Ultra-lab.

It’s a toolbox comprised of more than 20 hands-on, easily assembled electronic experiments; an online source for course materials and documentation tools; and a collaborative space where teachers can meet with a moderator to share their findings and ask technical questions.

It aims to train teachers of Technology and students to creative technologies, which means technologies empowering young students to make devices, machines, art-works, experiments etc., enable them to learn doing things and to express themselves as creators. (more…)

Maker Faire Rome

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.

The conference

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.

The booth

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

Meet all the other makers at this link.

The store 

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.

The presentations

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! ;)

World Makerfaire 2013

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)

Some notes from the Smart Textiles Salon

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

smart textile salon

Smart Textiles Salon was the last event of the Smart Textiles Week organized by the Textile department of the University of Ghent in the beautiful town of Ghent, in Belgium at the beginning of June:

Smart Textiles Salon is an attempt to bring topical research in the field of Smart Textiles to the stage and showcase it to the world. We wanted to make clear that Smart Textiles are not only existing in research projects, but that the potential for market introduction is huge already today. This should be recognized and taken to the next level.

Our friends Riccardo Marchesi (Inntex and Plug&wear) and Giulia Tomasello (Ruah project), took part to the event and sent us a short report  highlighting with words and pictures some cool projects they encountered during the days at the Salon.
