Recyclism - Physical Computing Workshop 160311

Recyclism - Physical Computing Workshop 160311
When: Wednesday 16th of March, from 10am to 5pm
Where: Hosted by Moxie Studio

This course is run by Benjamin Gaulon, a new media artist and lecturer in the National College of Art and Design (Dublin) and in the Institute of Art, Design and Technology (Dun Laoghaire). Benjamin has been working for several years with programming and micro processors and teaches it for the last 5 years.

We used the software Pure Data (aka PD) and the Arduino software + hardware (the Duemilanove) plus some breadboards and our own laptops for the day. We made lights blink and we could change the speed of the blinking with a potentiometer. We made digital oscillators which we could control with the pot. We also made sample players with push button triggers. We covered what felt like an impressive amount of material, and I was tired and happy by the end. I ordered the latest Arduino board, the Uno as soon as I got home.
