Tresnak::Tools:: {02}{Physical computing | Creative Electronics  Introduction to Arduino The Tresnak::Tools workshops are introductory sessions on how to approach the new technologies for their subsequent application in the creative and artistic arena.

Arduino is a free hardware platform, which facilitates the use of electronics in multidisciplinary projects, which enables appliances to be created that relate with the physical world, to give one example. Inspired directly on Processing, a visual programming language, it seeks to apply the same development simplicity and rapidity principles of this language to the field of electronics. It is a programming environment and integrated circuit, both under open code licences, designed to implement electronic projects, which is ideal for education and rapid prototype environments.

The course provides an initial introduction to creative electronics, which can be used to develop autonomous interactive objects or connected to different software platforms (Processing, Max/MSP, Pure Data, VVVV, ...).  It is a good starting point to embark on designing interactive installations and digital art projects that require development of electronic solutions.
