Arduino is a small circuit board that you can use to bring the physical world into the data world, and the data world into the physical world. For example, you can measure temperature, light, CO2, distance, movement or humidity, and connect buttons, switches or displays to control and display information, or motors to set something in motion. If you see an electronic art installation, it is likely that Arduino is in use.
This Verktøykassen will run over 3 days. We’re going to revisit the things we did last time, with the introduction to Arduino, power and programming; but we will go a little further and look at several ways to use Arduino. You don’t need to know any of this beforehand, but if you do have some experience, that’s all right too!
Wednesday December 11th – Friday 13th at 11.00 – 15.00 all three days
Sign up via this form. It is limited with seats and first come, first served. Bring your own laptop.
Verktøykassen is free and open to everyone, and will be held in Norwegian and/or English as needed.
Verktøykassen (the toolbox) is BEK’s new meeting place to learn about and try out technical tools, be it both hardware and software. There is a low threshold for participation and a high hands-on factor. Each time, a new “theme of the day” is launched, and the participants can come with inputs or questions that are raised jointly. The toolbox will take place regularly throughout the spring, and is led by game developer and programmer Stian Remvik.
