Introduction to new forms to interact – Arduino

about the workshop

 The goal of the workshop

The goal of the workshop is to provide, to the participants, the basic concepts of the open source tools, introduce to the creation of personal prototyping laboratory, and after it’s, to give a deeper knowledge into physical prototyping using the Arduino platform (an electronic platform “open source” based in a flexible tool “easy-to-use”).

The participants will have the chance to benefit from an innovative experience and from an excellent learning opportunity for its personal development and its need of learning at a professional level.

Any professional who works with multimedia and technologies has the need to learn about the basic skills of Arduino. Therefore the use of new technologies is each time more usual, with sight to create environments and systems of reply the impulses or choices from the end-users perspective, and the Arduino offers the possibility of use of free technologies multimedia, being essential for all the active professionals that wanted to modernize themselves,  to survive in this competitive and global market and to always innovate technologically.

At the end of the workshop the participants will be able to create interactive systems with audio, video and image, activated by sensors to interactive performances.


The workshop is targeted to artists, designers, engineers, musicians, programmers, interaction designers, architects or any other person interested in new media or interactive architecture (new interactive forms to interact with the computer).
