TinkerKit workshop at Node 2010TinkerKit workshop at Node 2010TinkerKit workshop at Node 2010

Friday, November 19th, 2010

Today we had the chance to run two short worskhops about VVVV in conjunction with the Tinkerkit.

Leaving aside the usual issues with Windows, we were able to introduce 50 people to the use of Arduino as an extention of VVVV into the physical world.

The tinkerKit gave us the ability to concentrate on using Arduino without teaching anything about electronic, because the modules just connect and work.

here are some pictures of the event,

P.s. here’s the custom version of Firmata that works with VVVV, we found that the version linked from the VVVV wiki doesn’t compile.

This is a drop-in replacement for the firmata folder of your Arduino. (it also contains a new version of firmata that reads the nintendo nunchucks).

These are the patches that Alessandro built to demonstrate the different funcionalities of the kit.

Thanks to MESO, Davide Brull and Joreg

Robots Robots Robots

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

Back in 2007 I had the chance to make a series of lectures with Casey Reas on the topic of open tools for design and art production. We toured 6 schools within the University of California in just 3 days. I prepared two lectures for this, the first one was called “High is Five” and the second “I hate robots”. The earlier was an attempt to explain my views on open hardware, while the second was just a collection of projects that had to do with electronics and were not robots.

Time has passed and now I am experiencing a counter-reaction. Since a month ago I am designing a low cost robot for the Spanish cultural centre in Mexico (more to come on this topic). But also I am starting to meet more and more people that see robots as a way of bringing kids into understanding electronics, as well as other science related topics. One of those is Eduardo Gallego, who runs the Complubot robotics studio in Madrid, Spain. He works with youngsters and has a pretty long history in the field of educational robots.

Among his achievements, his team has won for the third year in a row the Robot Soccer World Cup (at least one of the categories). Last time was in Singapore a couple of days ago. He has made a migration from other more expensive and hard to use tools, to run all the four competing robots using Arduino boards. He runs workshops for people interested in electronics and robotics and has made Arduino into his main tool for teaching. Check his educational robot here.

I must confess I had no idea about many of these things until I heard about the Robot Soccer World Cup. I am still not interested either in Soccer, nor Robots (or not industrial robots). But I see the potential of robotics in the same way Eduardo does. I believe there is a lot to do and getting things cheap is probably among the most important ones.

Poster for the Workshop

In the next two weeks, you can attend to one of Eduardo’s workshops in Madrid, or to my workshop in México, as long as you are not over 18 :-)

Sonar BCN: from paranoid robots to Chicks on SpeedSonar BCN: de robots paranoides a Chicks on Speed

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

This year’s SonarMática -the area at the Sonar Music Festival in Barcelona dedicated to interactive arts- there are three pieces including Arduino technology inside (either software, hardware or both), people at Hangar.org reported today during a chat conversation. The three pieces have been developed partly or totally at Hangar’s lab. Let’s take a quick look at them:

Surveillance Cameras: they are alive!!!

This project by the Spanish artist Ricardo Iglesias, is the result of a one and a half years long research process where he developed a series of robots with the ability of not just filming people with their embedded cameras, but to intelligently follow them increasing the creepyness level of the whole thing. The robot’s controller was prototyped with an Arduino board and took a long time to make the final design because it needs three switching power sources to feed the different parts of the design from a single battery (as Miguel, Hangar’s engineer reported).

Violí MIDI y Metal·lòfon MIDI

Joan Vallvé presents two different musical instruments he made using Arduino:

The “Violí MIDI” and “Metal·lòfon MIDI” are part of the project to design and construct an automated musical environment. This environment must be able to play live, and that is why it has been designed to be easy to handle, reliable, stable and completely portable. The roots of the project lie in a reflection on the use of robotics as a tool for musical composition and performance. The media and surroundings influence and determine the artist’s creative process. A new environment, a new language and a new interface will produce new creations and new musical styles. This is therefore a new format which calls into question the limits of the concepts of singer-songwriter or musical group.

E-SHOE

The “E-shoe” by Chicks on Speed is the world’s first wireless, high heeled shoe guitar, made in collaboration with Siberian born shoe-designer Max Kibardin and Alex Posada/Bartosz Zygmunt [from Hangar]. The e-shoe is capable of triggering sounds wirelessly using midi. This shoe is part of Chicks on Speed´s ever growing collection of self made “Objekt Instruments” including cigar box synthesizers, super suits’ with sewn-in body sensors that trigger audio/video samples, a Theremin tapestry and two hats made in collaboration with Christophe Coppins and Diego Del Lion & Jano, based on illuminated drawings of Hildegard von Bingen, a 12th-century Christian mystic who received visions, composed ethereal airs, performed healing and even founded convents.

Surveillance Cameras: they are alive!!!

Este proyecto, por el artista español Ricardo Iglesias es el resultado de un año y medio de investigación y desarrollo en el que se han creado una serie de robots con la abilidad de no sólo filmar a la audiencia con sus cámaras, sino de seguirla de forma inteligente. El controlador de los robots se prototipó con un Arduino y tomó largo tiempo terminar el diseño final por la necesidad de crear una triple fuente de alimentación conmutada que alimentase las diferentes partes del proyecto desde una única batería (comenta Miguel, el ingeniero de Hangar).

Violí MIDI y Metal·lòfon MIDI

Joan Vallvé presenta dos intrumentos musicales hechos con Arduino:

El “Violín MIDI” y el “Metalófono MIDI” surgen como parte del proyecto de diseño y construcción de un entorno musical automático. Este entorno debe permitir tocar en directo y por esto se ha diseñado manejable, fiable, estable y totalmente portátil. El proyecto tiene su origen en la reflexión del uso de la robótica como herramienta para la creación y la actuación musical. Los medios y el entorno influyen y condicionan el proceso de creación del artista. Un nuevo entorno, un nuevo lenguaje y una nueva interfaz producirán nuevas creaciones, nuevos estilos musicales. Hablamos pues de un nuevo formato que cuestiona los límites de los conceptos cantautor o banda musical.

E-SHOE

El “E-shoe” de Chicks on Speed es el primer zapato de tacón-guitarra wireless del mundo, fruto de una colaboración con el diseñador de zapatos nacido en Siberia Max Kibardin y Alex Posada/Bartosz Zygmunt. El “E-shoe” es capaz de disparar sonidos de forma inalámbrica mediante MIDI. Este zapato forma parte de una creciente colección llamada “Objekt Instruments”, que incluye sintetizadores hechos con cajas de puros, super-trajes con sensores corporales cosidos que disparan fragmentos de audio o vídeo, un tapiz-theremin y dos sombreros hechos en colaboración con Christophe Coppins y Diego Del Lion & Jano, basados en los dibujos iluminados de Hildegarda de Bingen, una mística cristiana del siglo XII que tenía visiones, componía música, curaba a la gente e incluso fundó conventos.

Open Source Laser CutterCortadora Laser en Código Abierto

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

 

I got this email from Addie, a former ITP student:

Basically in short, we’re creating an open source laser cutter.

We have been doing the research for the last few months and believe we  have all the specs to make it happen… Now we just need the capital  to do it. Much like the open multitouch system of ’07/’08 we did, I believe if we can get the same attention, we can get the community to make it happen.

I want open source laser cutters to become a reality and an inundated fab piece for artist/designers/hackers. As you know from ITP, people can do amazing things if they just had the access to the equipment so  we’re trying to make that happen and happen now.

To give them support, visit this site and follow the instructions.

Thanks God, finally someone made it! I was starting not to be able of following Arduino’s development, this Cheatsheet from The Mechatronics Guy came to save me.

 

Arduino Cheatsheet

The beauty of it is that you can get all the knowledge at once, but also that the platform has now reached the highschool-exam level. People need the cheatsheet to make it to the exam. I just love it, I will print it and put it at K3’s lab here in Malmö. I bet you a Swedish Crown a lot of people will do the same.
