I am participating in this workshop next Saturday.
Are you interested in hardware, interactive environments and electronic instruments but don't know where to begin? Have you ever wanted to create your own mixed-media installation with lights,sounds, images and motion? Do you wish you could design your own interactive Daft Punk set?
Well, all your wishes are coming true! Come to Karaj to gain new super powers like:
Controlling a force of nature to light lights, run motors, and make music (AKA basic electronics)
How to make a tiny computer do anything you want! (AKA Microcontroller programming)
Have a vibrating disk create beats to dance to (music synthesis)
We will be running a day long workshop with our very own hardware maker Guru, Bilal Ghalib, coming straight from the Michigan for your workshopping pleasure.
The workshop will cover fundamentals of electronics and programming micro-controllers with Arduinos, the easiest, fastest and baddest microcontroller platform in the world. Using entirely free and open source technology we will begin to experiment with developing your own mixed media project.
