Arduino is an open source hardware platform based on a simple board of inputs and outputs and a development environment that uses Processing/Wiring programming language. Arduino can be used to develop interactive autonomous objects and may be connected to programs such as Flash, Processing, Max/MSP and Pure Data. The Arduino platforms are based on Atmega168 and ATmega8 microcontrollers - simple low cost chips that enable many designs to be developed. As they are open hardware, both their design and their distribution is free and they can be freely used to carry out any type of project with no need to purchase a licence.
Over the three days of Sonar, a group consisting of artists, programmers and designers, co-ordinated by Alex Posada (the head of the interaction laboratory at Hangar) will be working intensively on several projects based on the Arduino platform. This working group, which was formed earlier this year, goes to the Hangar medialab every Thursday to learn about and work with free tools. Their projects range from the construction of audiovisual controllers (Arduinome, MIDI, etc.) and small musical instruments with sensors, to the development of lighting systems and small interactive objects.
In collaboration with: Miguel Ángel de Heras. Members of the "Arduino and DIY electronica" working group.
Project location: Hangar - Free entrance
