Our senses take our environment in and capture its nuances as signals our brains can interpret. We can feel variations in heat and see changes in lighting, these signals allow us to respond →
What is it?
A stepper motor rotates in small precise increments named steps or phases. They theoretically move at a constant pace and as the speed increases the torque decreases. They are the most powerful →
What is it?
A servo motor is really a three-in-one deal. It is either an AC or DC motor, reduction gearing and miniaturised control electronics rolled into one solid, compact and versatile motor. Its →
What is it?
DC Motors (DC standing for Direct Current) create electromagnetic force from current which spins an output shaft. In spins according to the polarity of the voltage, so switching the polarity →
There is no better way to find out how a technology compares to an other one then doing a complete project with both technologies.
In order to compare working with the mbed and working with the arduino, →
With around 1 billion chip produced every year, the 555 timer is the most produced chip around the world. Simply put, the 555 is an electrical timer, it can output current at a specified frequency, it →
In this project, the relationship between artistic creations and human motion will be explored with the objet sonore; a concept derived from Pierre Schaffer's idea that sound can be considered as a separate →
"poesis" encouraged visitors to participate in the co-authoring of a symbolic description of the relationship between an urban landscape and it's occupants.
Through the metaphor of performance and performativity, →
Resound is a pattern sequencer that can be modified by information sent from other networked objects. A predefined rhythm is disrupted by packets delivered from neighboring microcontrollers. Using everyday →
My project is a little animal with magic capacities. The chinchilight have fosfluorescent organs which give to it the opportunities to catch the light, digest it and than return the rest of the light. →
Kisses uses the three pieces of information recieved in the network project Cadavre Exquis as a communication signal to turn on LEDs on an otherwise static 2 dimensional painting. Through the Arduino →
"Electromask" endeavours to create a communicative bridge between two worlds that are veiled from one another. Further, it attempts to convey these otherworldly intentions. While residing firmly within →
LuxTag is a fast-paced, interactive, laser light game where individual players attempt to shoot light sensitive targets worn by opposing team members. The game begins when each player attaches a balloon →
"milky" is a high-risk game in which participants are responsible for protecting other organisms' health and well-being. in order to succeed, participants must catch ordinary tap water in their mouths →
A zoetrope is an early tool used to animate a series of images by affecting the viewers persistence of vision. This example represents a simple electronic version using a push button and an Arduino to →
